My Future plans for GExperts

A while ago I stopped using the formatter branch and officially took over the trunk of the GExperts repository. When I announced that on G+, Stefan Glienke asked me about my plans for GExperts.

My answer today is still the same as back then:

I will release new GExperts versions when I feel like it. And I will continue to call them experimental. There will be no rigorous testing, since nobody has volunteered to take on that responsibility. I will be using the latest development version in my daily work, so for now you can assume that at least the Delphi 2007 and XE2 versions are reasonably stable. This will change once I move on to newer versions, but unfortunately I don’t see that in the near future.

So, if you don’t like this, I would welcome volunteers to step forward and assume the responsibility of testing GExperts preferably with the Delphi versions they use every day. Your reward will be a place in the contributor list and possibly the pain of working with a not quite stable IDE.

Some people have started pestering me about making a new release (you know how you are!). Don’t think that this has done anything to actually make me do it, I simply thought it to be the right time with Delphi 10.2 Tokyo apparently right around the corner.

I have created installers for all supported Delphi versions.

I don’t remember all the new features and bug fixes that went into this release, but I am pretty sure it is more stable and has more features than the previous one.

But anyway:

Please be aware that I mostly work with Delphi 2007, so this version can be regarded as tested quite well, followed by Delphi XE2. The others are only known to compile and new features are usually tested superficially with all versions. This is particularly true for Delphi 6/7 and 2005/2006.

Head over to the Experimental GExperts page to download the latest release.
