I find it amusing, but I will not lie low and let the work of many
people and millions of hours be put down with unjustified and unfounded
falacies and misconceptions. Sorry.
Hadi, I don't want to bring down the huge amount of work done by the Indy
people, but like Tony, for me also the main problem with Indy is the
incompatibility between versions.
We have Indy 8 running in one of our programs, which we can't upgrade to
Indy 9 because of the incompatibilites. And for the same reason we use Indy
9 still in other programs, because we don't even dare to upgrade to Indy 10.
If we/I find a bug in it, I try to solve it myself in the source (so thank
you for the source!)
I know sometimes a change of architecture is necessary, but to me, a
developer using Indy, it looks like this is happening between every major
So because of the above, you can't just get to download the last snapshot to
solve a problem, because that would mean you also would have to redesign how
you use indy components in your program.
So Indy is still a great product! It is just when you run into a bug, there
are problems upgrading.
Need to change your projects version info from the commandline?
