Roadmaps for Delphi and C++Builder are published again

with 7 comments

At long last, we have been able to publish our Delphi and C++Builder roadmaps again. I hope to see the roadmaps for the rest of our products published again, too!

You can see the roadmap on the CodeGear Developer Network.

  2. Hmm, nothing about Linux?!
    That’s too bad for people like me who actually *bought* (yes, with real money) into the Kylix hype just to watch the product become useless and die (utterly unsupported on newer Linux distributions).

  3. @Geo Be serious about Linux, yes it’s huge in the server market. Yes it’s running 98% of the worlds supercomputers. But M$ still has 95% of the desktop market. Delphi isn’t about server applications it’s GUI centric which means desktop app orientated. Developments like Delphi for PHP are a more logical step as a lot of Windows programmers want the benefit of Linux Apache MySQL and PHP technology, mainly because they (or their clients) use Linux based web hosting over Windows for its reliablity and performance, but still want the familiar Windows programming environment to work in.

  4. Focus of CodeGear has come to forefront. There are some positives. The articlae is cryptic in terms of granularity of information dessimenation.

    In the Highlights of Highlander on ECO IV data binding with Intraweb UI needs a mention. (UI was the issue in using ECO III)

  5. I am pleased with the road maps! It’s great to know that CodeGear has plans for the future. There was a long period where I had to consider the demise of my favorite development tool. For me .Net and Linux are so far down on my list of priorities that they truely do not matter. Microsoft has their hands full with so many things that .Net will be a moving target for 5-10 years. It’s a waste of time to have that as a top priority. I recently read an article from 2003 that had stated Orcas would be delivered in 2005. They are years behind because they are trying to be everything to everyone. In my opinion Visual Studio only makes sense if you buy into the complete MS soltuion stack. The real money is to be made servicing SMBs, something that just does not fit Microsoft’s current vision. They are soley focused on enterprise development. If you want to be an ISV and produce products that you can sell on your own, CodeGear is the only way to go! This is not just theory. I have beaten two companies to market who tried to deploy .Net applications into vertical markets. It was me against a team of 15 .Net developers. I finished my frist version in 180 days while they are still not finished after 14 months. Their biggest problem was deployment. You guys keep doing what you do. It pleases me to see the company act aggressively again. There has not been this much product activity at Borland/CodeGear since Phillipe Khan was in charge. Rock on!!!
