REDUCED Prices!!!

With the rollout of RiverSoftAVG IMPACT, we are restructuring the prices of a couple of our products and have permanently reduced their prices:

May 22, 2016

RiverSoftAVG SVG Component Library (RSCL) Updated to v2.2 

We have updated the RiverSoftAVG SVG Component Library to v2.2.  We have also reduced the price of the base RSCL from $80 to $66; this is not a sale price.  However, this price does not include RiverSoftAVG IMPACT.  The RSCL received the following updates:

  • Supports C++Builder (XE8+)
  • Optimized the TSVGDocument.DrawElement method
  • Added Quality properties to most controls (TRSSVGImage, TRSSVGImageList, etc).  The quality property controls the level of over-sampling to perform, which can dramatically improve anti-aliasing on buffered drawing of SVGs, especially on mobile platforms (at the cost of increased memory and speed)
  • Bug Fixes

Note that all products were recompiled because of a new unit in the RiverSoftAVG Common Classes Library Please see the FLCL version historyGACL_version_historyIECS_version_historyRCCS_version_historyRSCL version history and the RCCL version_history for more details.

New Blog Post about Editing SVGs with RSCL

There is a new blog post about editing SVGs to make high-quality, dynamic controls using the RiverSoftAVG SVG Component Library.  An excerpt:

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) are awesome.  Not only because they are scaleable, but perhaps even more importantly, because they are editable.  When you download a bitmap or png from the web, your options for editing it are limited.  With a lot of work and expertise in Photoshop, you can perhaps edit them, but usually not perfectly and changing them on the fly is just not possible.
SVGs are different.  Each piece of the graphic is editable.  You can change colors, rotations, visibility, etc.  With the RiverSoftAVG SVG Component Library (RSCL), you get access to a whole world wide web of customizable graphics for your applications.

March 13, 2016

All RiverSoftAVG Products have been updated and have new evaluation versions

All of our current products have been updated.  There was a problem with the controls being grayed out when the iOS 64-bit target was selected.  This has been fixed for all products.  Also, there were minor updates to the RiverSoftAVG SVG Component Library.  There are also new evaluation versions.

Please see the FLCL version historyGACL_version_historyIECS_version_historyRCCS_version_historyRSCL version history and the RCCL version_history for more details.

   Rad Studio XE4 Progress (Update) and a new blog

We apologize.  We know you have been hoping to get your hands on the XE4 versions of our components.  Unfortunately, the XE4 support is taking longer than hoped.  To support XE4 mobile, it is requiring massive changes under the hood.  The Delphi XE4 mobile version discourages the use of pointers and Embarcadero has deprecated TList (they recommend using the generics TList<> instead).  Some of our code was written in 1999 or earlier.  Pointers, TLists, and other stuff like it are all over the place.  This release is turning out to be a major release (e.g., IECS will go from v4.0 to v5.0).

We will release a beta version of our products in the next 2 weeks.

In the meantime, you can check out my new Delphi CodeSmith blog

   Inference Engine Component Suite v4.0 EEP News Update

We are excited to let you know about what is happening with the IECS EEP. The major features of the new version are finalized and being worked on. This version of the IECS, available with source code version only, adds (or will add) the following features:

  • CLIPS DefModule Support!
  • FireMonkey Support!  (IECS now supports Win32, Win64, and FMX)
  • New FMX-specific Expert System Functions, including Animation functions
  • New FMX Dialogs for cross-platform console and editing of IECS constructs
  • RiverSoftAVG Charting Component Suite v4.0 Included

Every feature except defmodule support is complete. Defmodule support is huge and has been our most requested feature. Defmodules allow you to more easily partition your expert system, where each module has their own fact templates, facts, rules, and agenda. Defmodules can share fact templates and facts, and it is easy to switch control between modules. We are very excited about this feature. It is requiring the most extensive changes to the IECS since we were working on the Fuzzy Logic features for v2.0. However, from an expert system point of view, it is a totally non-breaking feature update (meaning it won't break any of your expert systems). From a source code point of view, it should also be a mostly non-breaking feature update though to get the power of defmodules you will need to change your code.

We hope to release our next EEP in two weeks which will include the first defmodule support and FMX expert system functions.  The EEP is available to all customers who purchased the IECS since January 1st or who have upgraded to the latest version 4.0.

   RiverSoftAVG FireMonkey Sale

In celebration of the upcoming FireMonkey support in our components, we are offering some of our largest ever discounts.  Now through May 1st, take advantage of this pre-release sale to purchase or upgrade our software with prices from 10-30% off!  Buy our products now and automatically get the FireMonkey support when they are released this May-June.  The FireMonkey support is a free upgrade to our current customers of the Genetic Algorithms Component Library, Fuzzy Logic Component Library, RiverSoftAVG Charting Component Suite.  There are special upgrade prices for our current Inference Engine Component Suite customers.  To purchase a new or upgraded license, please go to the Order page.

About our planned support: 

We are excited to be adding FireMonkey support to ALL of our products, including the Genetic Algorithms Component Library, Fuzzy Logic Component Library, RiverSoftAVG Charting Component Suite and the Inference Engine Component Suite.  We are currently rolling out Early Experience Program (EEP) versions of our products and plan to release official versions this May-June.  FireMonkey versions are not separate products.  When you buy our products, you will get VCL (Win32/Win64) and FMX support in one package!  In general, with the exception of the Charting Suite, FireMonkey is supported from the exact same code base so switching from VCL to FMX and back will be trivial beyond possible scoping issues.  However, the ICES data-aware components will be VCL-Only, and there will be new FMX versions of the IECS dialogs.

   Rad Studio XE2 Releases are coming soon
We know you have been waiting patiently and we apologize for the wait. We are hard at work on updates to our Component Suites for Embarcadero's RAD Studio XE2. The new RAD Studio XE2 is one of the most significant Delphi releases ever. Unfortunately, this means that updating our components for the new version has been a more significant effort than we have seen in awhile. We are working on 32-Bit AND 64-Bit updates for ALL of our components: RiverSoftAVG Charting Component Suite, Inference Engine Component Suite, Fuzzy Logic Component Library, and the Genetic Algorithms Component Library. We hope to have betas available to registered users by the first weekend in December. Longer term, we will be porting the GACL, FLCL, and most of the IECS (excluding dialogs) to FireMonkey. We are still evaluating whether we will port the Charting Component Suite to FireMonkey and to what level. Stay tuned for more information on the RCCS and FireMonkey. A final note, the new versions of our components will be for RAD Studio 2009 and up only. We decided to do this because of several reasons. It has been getting harder and harder to support the older versions as we've gone along, and it has prevented us from using many of the modern language features of Delphi. In addition, many of the older versions of Delphi are problematic on Windows 7 (our primary development and testing platform). All of our old versions will still be available for pre-RAD Studio 2009. Stay tuned and Happy Holidays!

    Inference Engine Component Suite updated
There is a minor update to the Inference Engine Component Suite.  This update fixes a dialog form stream error that occurred in earlier versions of Delphi because they do not support Explicit* properties added with D2006+ (which had been accidentally added when the form was saved in D2006+).  Registered users can download the update from the Support page.  Evaluation versions are available from the Downloads page.

    Downtime Blues
We apologize profusely for the web site downtime the last 2 days.  Our (former) web hosting provider, Global Internet Solutions (GISOL), suspended our account without warning Wednesday night in an attempt to coerce us into "upgrading" to a more expensive solution.  We'll spare you the gory details, but we have a new provider now - hopefully much better and more reputable.  If you are in the market for a web hosting provider, avoid GISOL at all costs - they are crooks (seewww.report-gisol.comfor more details of things they do).

Again, we apologize for the downtime and please resend any emails you might have sent.

   Overwhelmed by spam, tgrubb email address to be retired soon
The frequency of spam and worms has been steadily increasing the last few years.  Within the last few months, however, the pure volume of spam has become overwhelming.  The tgrubbATRiverSoftAVG.com email account receives greater than 150 SPAM emails a day.  Anti-spam software is of limited help.  At this point, I barely look at all the email subjects per day, let alone their contents.  I am sure that once or twice legitimate email messages must have been deleted by accident... (If you have sent an email message with subject "Hello", "Thanks", "Increase your member", etc :-) I apologize that I haven't replied.  As a general rule, please try to use descriptive subjects).  Long story short, the tgrubb email account will be deleted soon (probably by the end of September).  After that, emails sent to that address will bounce.  Please change your address books to use tggrubb AT No Spam RiverSoftAVG.com (note the extra "g").  You can start using this email address immediately.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

Note: For the time being, the support email address will stay active.  Though even that email is starting to be overwhelmed.

   RiverSoftAVG Announces Collaboration with Raize Software
RiverSoftAVG is very pleased to announce a collaborative product between RiverSoftAVG and Raize Software, Inspex. Inspex is an advanced set of native VCL grid controls specifically designed for inspecting objects and other data types in Delphi and C++Builder applications. RiverSoftAVG has exclusively licensed the core technology of theirObject Inspector Component Suite (OICS) to Raize Software. Working in close collaboration, the OICS has been re-branded as Inspex, extended, and incorporated into the Raize Software family of developer tools.  Inspex 2.0 provides the following new features over the OICS:
bullet Improved architecture and usability improvements
bullet XP/Vista Theme Support
bullet C++Builder support (in BDS 2006 and C++Builder 2007)

The hottest Delphi topic on the web right now is Borland's plans to divest its IDE (including Delphi) and other products.  We decided we should chime in to reassure our customers.  RiverSoftAVG is cautiously optimistic about this plan.  You can even say we are actually excited about it - the right company can really invest in Delphi to make it even better and expand its customer base.  We wish Borland the best of luck in finding the right DelphiCo.  Our customers can rest assured that RiverSoftAVG is a Borland Technology Partner and we plan to be a new DelphiCo Technology Partner in the future.  We continue to support old products and develop new products for Delphi.  We plan to support our beloved Delphi now and in the future, wherever Delphi goes.

    IECS v2.5 Early Experience Program (EEP)
Finally, after WAY too long, the Inference Engine Component Suite v2.5 is in beta testing!  We apologize that it took so long but, despite Borland's hype, converting *components* from Win32 to .NET was a major task.  IECS v2.5 adds 2 important features:
 
* .NET support! IECS now supports Delphi 2005 VCL.NET. The Win32 and .NET versions are identical except that the .NET version does not have DB support, the User Function Wizard, and some minor miscellaneous functions.
* New Charting Components! The IECS now uses RiverSoftAVG’s own Charting Component Suite for .NET and Win32. This solves problems with depending on TeeChart, which was a problem for .NET users especially but was also a problem for TeeChart Pro purchasers (which required a recompilation of the IECS). The RiverSoftAVG Charting Component Suite is free (to everyone) with source for non-commercial use. A Commercial use license is included free with all versions of IECS v2.5 users ($100 value).
 
Please see the IECS Version History page for more details.
 
The EEP is a beta version, with source code, which provides an opportunity for users to experience the new version 2.5 BEFORE it is released.  EEP owners automatically receive version 2.5 when it is released.  The EEP is for source-code owners only, which allows quicker distribution of changes to users and more exact feedback from users. 
 
Users who have bought IECS v2.0 Source Code in the last six months (since January 1st, 2005) receive this upgrade for free! Non-Source Code users who bought the IECS in the last six months can buy this crossgrade (from non-source to source) for $175.  (Please contact us atsupport@RiverSoftAVG.com for details)  The EEP is also available as a paid upgrade (with a free upgrade to version 2.5 when the EEP is finished).  The cost for the EEP (and also the cost for Version 2.5) is: 
 
    $400    Source Code, Full Version
    FREE    Source Code, Upgrade from IECS Source (AFTER Jan 1, 2005)
    $150    Source Code, Upgrade from IECS Source (BEFORE Jan 1, 2005)
    $175    Source Code, Upgrade from Non-Source (AFTER Jan 1, 2005)
    $300    Source Code, Upgrade from Non-Source (BEFORE Jan 1, 2005)
