I am using LMD tools since an eternity already. I believe since 2003.
The reason I bought into the LMD ecosystem is Elpack, because Elpack brought unicode support to Delphi in the early 2000's.
My application suite has grown and grown over the past 20 years, is currently using the Delphi XE compiler, and I am using Elpack in many hundreds of forms. I renew my LMD license each year.
The Elpack website still says "If you need to add Unicode support to your Delphi, C++Builder applications (based on pre-unicode IDEs), .... then LMD ElPack is the right tool package for you.". Only ... That isn't correct anymore.
The latest 2021 version of LMD needs at least Delphi XE2 to install. So the product won't work on the IDE's that it was meant for.
Migrating my own application suite from Delphi XE to the latest version (Sydney) would would take me many months, which is very hard to justify to our management right now, given the financial hardships that the Corona pandemic imposes on all of us.
So what am I to do?
Stick with the 2020 version of LMD tools forever, and no longer renew the license? Spend precious time migrating everything to Delphi Sydney? Or spend time migrating to a different component library?
I wish this choice weren't imposed on me, I'd be much happier if LMD tools would still support Delphi XE.
