It’s been a while since my last post (with text ;), and i apologize. A lot of interesting things have been going on at RemObjects that have been keeping me busy.
As some of you might have seen, on thursday we announced a a new product to our portfolio, AnyDAC 2.0 for Delphi. Developed by Dmitry Arefiev of DA-SOFT, AnyDAC is not an entirely new product, and version 1.0 has been around for a while and is successfully used by thousands of Delphi and Free Pascal developers every day.
For version 2.0, Dmitry felt the product would benefit from the experience and infrastructure provided by a company such us ours, and so we decided to work together and bring AnyDAC into the fold. Given our existing product portfolio, AnyDAC is a perfect fit, as it closes the one remaining gap in our end-to-end data access strategy that so far relied on third party solutions: talking to the physical back-end databases. AnyDAC will integrate seamlessly with Data Abstract for Delphi to provide the entire data access story from one hand, now (although Data Abstract will of course continue to use its open driver model and to support third party drivers).
We’re very excited to have Dmitry on board and be working with him on this, and so far the response we have received both from our customers and existing AnyDAC users has been tremendous – everyone is very excited about the possibilities this cooperation will bring.
Over the next couple months we will be busy finalizing the integration and getting AnyDAC 2.0 ready to be shipped along with our general .29 releases in February. In the mean time, we are looking for a few more good and committed beta testers – so if you are interested, please let me know.
More details about out AnyDAC can be found in our announcement at remobjects.com/anydac.
Oh, and one more thing: of course AnyDAC for Delphi will automatically be available to all our Suite Subscription customers, as soon as the final release is done.
