Backporting in progress to Delphi

Unfortunately, in the last weeks we found a number of problems using Lazarus/FPC. This IDE and compiler aren't enough mature and stable for a project, like ASuite.

We (I and my coworker, thecocce) will wait a better Lazarus version (1.2) for our project, but until then, we must use Delphi (XE3 edition, exactly) to develop ASuite.

For more information, follow ASuite project on github.com.

Could you elaborate?

I've used Lazarus/FPC for a few small projects and thought it would be great for ASuite. Could you share some of the details of what you found lacking?

BTW: do you have any plans on

BTW: do you have any plans on skinnable "start menu" for v.2 like in v.1.5.2 (hardcoded o plugin-based)? It was not very clever to edit apps in 1.5.2 but I still prefer 1.x instead of 2.x because of this menu

- No TMenuItem's OnDrawn and OnMeasureItem http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=13178
- TMenuItem's OnClick bugged http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=21997 (big problem for me)
- Lazarus isn't enough mature and stable (IMHO)

Yes, Graphic Menu returns in ASuite 2.0a3 ( https://github.com/salvadorbs/Asuite/issues/7 ) and I will add a true skin engine. In fact, it (probably) will support PortableApps Menu's theme.

Great news! I will only ask to check its work on multimonitor systems with multiple tray bars because I tried 1.5.2 and find that the form jumps in different places (X axis only). You can check this behavior using trial version of DisplayFusion ( http://www.displayfusion.com/ ) by example.

Any news?

I want to ask is there any news about the release date? I'm currently using 1.5.2 and found the problem that there are no way to activate selected item from keyboard (generally unable to run program by pressing ENTER) and I suppose this issue will not be present in new release

In graphic menu? Yes, this issue will not be present in 2.0 and GM will lightly different from v1.5.2:
- more usable with keyboard
- added a search engine (windows 7 style)
- better theme engine
- others... :)

It's almost end of the year

It's almost end of the year :) Let us enjoy your new release this Xmas :)

Merry Xmas!
