Will this "...brand-new and ground-breaking product..." be delphi only, or it is something you will have available for Lazarus too.

I taking some decisions but the pascal stuff if there is some will be Lazarus only from now on.

The good thing is you won''t be required to make choice between these.

I heard some vcl components that cannot be used in C++ Builder, who are them? Maybe the bussiness components which heavily rely on RTTI of Delphi? In every conference, nobody talk about C++ Builder?

Best regards

TMS Aurelius, TMS XData, TMS FixInsight, TMS WEB Core and TMS Plugin Framework are products only for Delphi. These products cannot be used with C++Builder for various technical reasons.
Other products can be used with both Delphi & C++Builder.
