PasHi Pascal Highlighter files removed from DelphiDabbler.com - use GitHub instead.
Until now the latest version of the PasHi Pascal Syntax Highlighter program's excutable and source files were available on both DelphiDabbler.com and GitHub.

Fixed coding error in Tip #41

Delphi Library downloads no longer available from this site - use SourceForge
In the past, the latest version of each project in the Delphi Library has had its source code available on this site and on SourceForge (and before that, GoogleCode). That has increased the work involved in releasing new code and risked the files being out of synch. So, I've rationalised it. As of now, all library source code is only available on SourceForge. Any old links to downloads on this site will now generate a 404 error, but, for the time being, the error page will provide a link to the files on SourceForge.

Updated all DelphiDabbler Code Library pages to reference correct source code repo
All the DelphiDabbler Code Library web pages have been updated to link to the new SourceForge Subversion repository instead of to the old, and now defunct, GoogleCode repo. **Note though that links in the documentation downloaded with the project may be broken.**

System Information Unit v5.1.0 released
After a long struggle getting to understand what Microsoft are up to, I've finally released a new version of the System Information Unit that adds support for the detection and reporting of the Windows 10 operating system. If you thought things were messy with Windows 8.1, wait until you see how crazy things have got now! The online documentation for the unit will be updated in the coming days.

CodeSnip GoogleCode Repository relocated to SourceForge.
Due to the impending closure of GoogleCode, the CodeSnip source code repository has now been moved to SourceForge and the GoogleCode repo has been closed. Any references to the old GoogleCode URL now redirect to SourceForge. The CodeSnip ticketing system moved some time ago.
