Delphi Roadmap published in greater Detail

DavidI has published a document on BDN, where he explains the Delphi roadmap for 2005, 2006, and 2007 in much greater detail than ever done before.

Most of you will have heard about BDS 2006, the upcoming releases of Delphi, C++Builder, and C#Builder already. If not, and if you are a little firm in German, or at least in viewing pictures, you may want to take a look at my presentation of it in the latest newsletter of Borland Germany.

While the roadmap is subject to change, Borland better will go as close by it, as in any way possible. Not least, they are a Wall Street traded company, so a roadmap such as this will have affect on their market value.

Now, looking at the roadmap, I am getting excited, a little anyway. The VCL will go on another venture with us and will be brought to CF.NET, which is exciting. Why? Well, for newsters, we work with the VCL since over 10 years and we know it by heart. This way we can go on working with the horse we already have well trained in those years. Further, we will eventually see the Delphi.NET compiler targetting .NET 2.0, not bad either, is it ;-)

Then, there is "Delphi Longhorn" and what do we read there? Managed C++ and ECO für Managed C++. Wow! Avalon, WinFS, ... support from BDS. I think that sounds great, now let's hope it'll happen just this way as well. ;-)
