      Your dlls will still work, the udf/udp functionality
      exists and works as well as before

      Given v10 offers you the ability to have parallel execution
      you need to make sure the dlls are thread-safe
      not that much of a burden but simply a consideration that
      didn't matter before, you might be inclined to make use
      of delphi's great activeform feature (not part of d2007
      for unfathomable reasons but you can take a d7
      project and recompile it to get the ease of use
      it offers for activex control creation)
      when magic makes good on its call dot net forms
      promises, that may be another way to go

      still i think web-based is the way to go for everything

      Regarding HotFudge there is a v10 compatible
      version http://craigmartin.com/hotfudge/help/
      you can see it's some time since I got to it
      2007 has been a year of some, um, challenges
      which has taken a certain amount of grace
      and mindfulness to come through (almost) unscathed,
      what I'm trying to say is I didn't get to much hotfudge
      this year but as order returns to my small part of the galaxy
      new fudge is on the cards

      i deprecated all the subclassing behaviours because you
      no longer need that stuff since v10 pretty much offers
      most of it, but it could be made to work if you
      have a great dependency on it, other functions continue

      i hope to roll out some discovery related projects like
      thunderbolt, steaming haggis or dreamland from
      beta to production at some point soon too
      not to mention disco-a-go-go

      if you know delphi, you know how easy everything i
      did for v7/8/9 in hotfudge was
      no joke

      the smoking will kill you, stupid habit
