What's the status of the Delphi IDE Plugin?


#1

I see from the file timestamps that nothing’s been changed since the original announcement last August and it’s been left in “beta” state ever since.

Hello Steve,

Despite its beta status, the plugin is already very usable. We’ve been using it internally since its early alpha days to instrument the SmartInspect Console and it works very well. There are a few feature requests waiting to be implemented for this plugin but other than that it is already quite complete. We plan to ship this plugin (and maybe also a plugin for Visual Studio) in one of the next releases as a fully supported feature. The main purpose of the beta version was to make sure that our Delphi parser works with a wide range of Delphi projects. So far, we’ve only received positive feedback.

Have a nice weekend!
