News for February 2014

New CodeSnip blog
I've just set up a new blog for CodeSnip and Code Snippets Database related issues. I be using the blog for the desktop and online versions of CodeSnip and the Code Snippets database. The blog only has one entry at the time of writing, but it will become the primary source of information about CodeSnip in future. If you're a CodeSnip user, please consider subscribing using FeedBurner (see link). The blog itself is hosted on SourceForge.

Released v3.0.0 of the Message Dialogue Components
Version 3.0.0 of the Message Dialogue Components has been released. In this version the old TPJMessageDialog component, that had been deprecated for years, was finally removed from the project. The old WinHelp help files have also been removed. The demo has been overhauled to reflect these changes. Numerous problems the components had in compiling with newer Delphis have been fixed. This is the last of the recent overhaul of the Delphi Code Library to bring it up to date, so the rate of release should now return to normal.

Hot Label Component v2.2.0 released
The Hot Label Component from the Delphi Library has just been updated to v2.2.0. This version adds a new "visited" state to the label that emulates the HTML/CSS visited link style by (optionally) causing the label to display in a different font (e.g. colour and style) once the label's URL has been visited. The release also fixes compile problems with Delphi XE5 and some other minor bugs and also updates the code. The component is VCL only but compatible with 32- and 64-bit Windows compilers. The source code is now licensed under the Mozilla Public License v2.0.

Proposed licensing changes for Code Snippets Database
I'm considering changing the licensing arrangements for source code in the Code Snippets Database. At present licensing is not clear and I'm thinking of changing the code to use the MIT License. The linked blog post explains why and seeking comments.
