There are exciting times ahead! The team that brought you ECO for Delphi are now a separate company named Capable Objects (http://www.capableobjects.com).
ECO will still be part of the next release of Delphi, but according to the official statement (http://dn.codegear.com/article/3673>) and comments in the newsgroups it is quite obvious there will also be a version of ECO for Visual Studio!
In the past the ECO guys released patches for ECO bugs, unfortunately it was not always possible to provide a patch. With the guys now being a separate company they are free to decide their own release schedules. Instead of having to wait for a Delphi update they can now release updates as often as they wish. Just like the good old BoldSoft days when we used to get an official update really quickly if ever a critical bug was found. Not only that, but it would also seem that they will be shipping source code too!
But that's not all John!
The guys at Capable Objects have asked me to write documentation. I've been adding XMLDoc to the source code so the API help will be more up to date. As soon as possible I will be writing a quick start document for Delphi (and any other IDE's) too.
Can't wait! :-)
