Beta does not mean final

Friday, August 27, 2004 04:10 AM

There are some heated discussions on the borland.public.delphi.non-technical newsgroup (are there any other kinds of discussion there?) regarding the next version of Delphi, codenamed Diamondback. Some people believe the next version should support version 2.0 of the .NET Framework, even though it is still in Beta.

The problem with this approach is that Beta versions are a moving target. It's true that Microsoft releases development tools that support the Beta platform, but then, Microsoft makes the platform. People tend to ignore the fact the Beta version is not the finished product - in fact, the final version may be very different. Here's just one example.
