Upgrade pricing for v2006 and earlier users ends Tuesday

We recently re-opened the upgrade window to allow registered users of 2006 and earlier versions of Delphi, C++Builder and Borland Developer Studio to upgrade to the XE versions. If you have one of those older versions, you only have until end-of-day this coming Tuesday May 31, 2011 to buy at the upgrade price. After that you'll have to again pay the full new user price if you want to move to XE or a future version.

Remember you can also combine this eligibility with the Get RAD Studio at the Delphi/C++Builder price offer and pay just the Delphi or C++Builder upgrade price and get full RAD Studio XE with Delphi, C++Builder, Delphi Prism and RadPHP.

Here's the link with all your choices for How to Buy.

Delphi Wins the Code Project Members Choice Award

Just got back from Atlanta where we had a great week at Tech Ed 2011.

Things started off Sunday evening when Delphi XE received the Code Project Members Choice Award for Best Programming Language. It was our second win in two years. Thank you to everyone who voted for Delphi.

I have more photos from Tech Ed and I'll post them soon.

The $8.5 billion Delphi application - Microsoft to acquire Skype

One of my favorite applications built with Delphi is Skype for Windows. We use Skype here every day. It's been great to see the success of Skype and so many millions of users experiencing and relying on a Delphi application for their day to day communication.

Today Microsoft announced that they will be acquiring Skype for $8.5 billion. I think that makes Skype the most valuable Delphi application out there.

Of course there are also many other great applications built with Delphi and you can see some of them in the Embarcadero Delphi Application Showcase.

If you haven't submitted your Delphi application for the showcase yet, you can do that here. We're always happy to learn about what you're creating with Delphi.
