Monday’s podcast will feature an interview with RemObject‘s marc hoffman. Delphi Prism has been released, and it is powered by the RemObjects Oxygene compiler. If you have any questions about the Oxygene Compiler then this is your opportunity to ask them of marc, as he is the Chief Software Architect for RemObjects.
Please, leave your questions in the box below, and I will cover what I can with marc. Remember, keep your questions focused on Oxygene and RemObjects as marc won’t be able to answer questions on behalf of CodeGear or Embarcadero.
I went to install the latest JVCL today for Delphi 2009. I was surprised that JEDI stopped offering one download with both the JCL and JVCL. So I downloaded both, installing JCL first since it is required by JVCL. Well, JVCL gave me an error that I had the wrong version of the JCL installed.
So I went back to Sourceforge to look if I grabbed the wrong one. Sure enough, I had the September 9th version of each. I tried again, and it still didn’t work. So I figured I would get the latest from Subversion. After I installed the subversion client I discovered links to download the latest versions via the subversion web interface as a tar.gz file (no need to connect via subversion.) The links are not obvious, but really useful in my opinion, so I thought I would share them here:

Delphi is competing for TIOBE’s “Language of the Year 2008 Award” together with C++ and Python.
Actually, if it continutes its rate of climb since September it could overtake Python as well, which would certainly help cinch its standing as language of the year. If I remember Python was last year, so I think it is Delphi’s turn.
So keep up the work of adding the phrase “Delphi Programming” to the text of all your pages about Delphi. While there are other phrases that count towards Delphi, they only take the highest phrase, which is currently “Delphi Programming” so lets focus on that.
