The Drag and Drop Component Suite version 5.0

Note: Version 5 has been released. This post is obsolete.

This page contains the most recent development snapshot of version 5 of the Drag and Drop Component Suite. Updated 2009-02-08.

If no major problems are found with this release it will probably be the last snapshot before final release.

The focus for version 5.0 is Unicode support. The plan is to be completely Unicode capable and compatible with Delphi 2009 and older versions of Delphi.

The core changes from version 4.2 includes:

  • Delphi 2009 (Unicode) compatibility.
  • PIDLs are no longer stored in strings and string lists.
  • The Netscape data formats has been deprecated.
  • Classes that deal with strings have been renamed to indicate if they deal with ansi or unicode data.
  • The Shell Context Menu component has been rewritten.
  • Lots of minor bug fixes.
