Speaking of Delphi 7…

TwoDesk Delphi Blog – Speaking of Delphi 7, I just learned that if you buy Delphi XE, you get earlier versions 7, 2007, 2009, and 2010 at no extra cost. There’s more information at www.embarcadero.com/products/delphi/previous-versions. One thing that’s really interesting to me is that Delphi 7 is part of this ...
