Embarcadero Shines Light on Delphi Prism: it is Oxygene!

The Delphi Prism press release has hit the web. I guess this makes it an announcement, this time... and we have more details.

The Delphi Prism press release has hit the web. I guess this makes it an announcement, this time...Notice:

  • Delphi Prism development language... with new features compared to Delphi Win32
  • Supports Mac OS X and Linux via Mono
  • Integrated Blackfish
  • DataSnap client creation

We also officially know where the technology comes from: A key to Delphi Prism’s multi-platform capabilities is the exclusive Oxygene technology licensed from RemObjects.

And also: Embarcadero has collaborated with RemObjects to develop Delphi Prism and is the exclusive licensee of Oxygene.

I think this is a GREAT move... more about this later.

Update (1 hour later)

There is now an official Delphi Prism page at codegear.com and a very nice interview with REM Objects CEO Mark Hoffman at bitwise magazine. This one is a very nice reading.

I agree.  This was the right thing to do, even if it 
means the VCL.NET is being "kylixed" in the process.  

The implications are massive.  Suddenly you can do 
Object Pascal in just about ALL the .NET technologies, 
and you are no longer trailing behind the .NET front 
(currently at 3.5), functionality wise.  If you can do 
it in C#, you can do it in Prism.

My "only" worry atm is how different the two Object 
Pascal dialects are, and whether having ifdef'ed dual 
platform code is a realistic option.

Pardon my ignorance, but how will this affect VCL.net?
Does that mean that this technology is dropped? I've
only used Win32 Delphi and never have played with the
.NET equivalent.

Yes! Finally! They should have done this years ago...
Chrome/Oxygene was kicking Delphi's ass. Good thing
they finally figured it out.

The only good news is they didn't wasted much 
resorces in this new S-turn in the .NET space.
