Virus attack!

Dear customers,

We have discovered that the Delphi versions of the installs have been infected by a Delphi specific virus.
Unfortunately the virus was not detected by the Anti virus programs until yesterday. The only good news is that the Virus is fairly harmless and can't infect any file on the system. Instead if Delphi 5-7 is found on the system the virus modifies one of the library DCUs so any newly built application will contain the virus code.
We have removed all the affected downloads, and have started work on a new set of installs that are expected to be ready by the end of next week, since the full cycle of testing takes many days. In the mean time anybody interested in new version can contact me at to receive updated install.
We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we had no way of detecting the virus since no AV software was detecting it until now.

With best regards,
Boian Mitov
