CrossKylix beta

Simon Kissel just posted this in kylix.non-tech:

I'm about to release CrossKylix, a free (as in beer and speech) toolkit to integrate the Kylix compiler into the Delphi Windows IDE.

This project was created for people who wish to develop cross-platform web/server/middleware applications with Delphi. Up until now doing this required you to have a seperate Linux installation (either on a dedicated box or inside VMWare) to recompile your project for the Linux platform. With CrossKylix this is no longer needed - you are able to build your project using the Kylix compiler from directly inside your Windows Delphi IDE, without the requirement of a Linux system.

After a few nights of coding, the project is mostly finished now and probably will be released this weekend.

I would be nice to have a few betatesters now to check if there are any compatibility problems I haven't thought about etc.

Requirements for Beta-Testers:

- Delphi 6 or 7 - Windows 2000 or XP - Kylix 3 (either installed or Installation CD). Other Kylix versions are welcome for testing, too.

The testers should be at least be a bit skilled in Kylix development, so they are able to give decent bug reports.

If you are interested, please drop me a mail [kissel at computerman dot de] , and I'll send you the current beta.

Thanks, Simon
