InstantObjects News

Web Site updated - More news to come.

Despite the web site not being updated and new versions not being released for quite a while, work has been going on as usual in the project. People that have been downloading and using the source code from our SVN repository know that.

We will be trying to keep the site more up to date with development, release more often, and get more information and documentation out, as we believe that InstantObjects is one of the best kept secret jems in the Delphi component landscape.

If you are interested in keeping up to date with InstantObjects development, you now have several options:

InstantObject has added full Unicode support for Delphi 2009 and up, the long awaited burst load mode, lots of enhancements to various brokers, new brokers, support for Delphi 2010 and Delphi XE, lots of bug fixes and optimizations.

Currently the team is preparing to release version 3.0.
