If you look at the what's new, you'll notice that the new features in the grid were those that were already discussed for the version 7 of the grid(i.e.: layout view).

Excellent.  Over the years I had purchased 6 products so I've taken the large discount and purchased a subscription.  It's a good deal for me and I am happy now to contribute yearly for improvements.

I see a bunch of enhancements this time.  I seem to remember that Scheduler would be getting a performance boost later this year - I could really do with that.

I have upgraded almost a decade ago and the combination with the controls makes it attractive enough, especially if we think that those have been added as a substitute for the ExpressWeb Framework.

Oh reminds me of the EWF Server pack these days by Remobjects and the RO ASP deployment add-on for Delphi. Glorious days.

Ok today we have the Pumpkin Skin which is the default skin in all my apps and only for the girls I added an automatic switch to the Valentine Skin either on their birthday or Valentine day dependent on the martial status.

What I really miss is a military/camouflage skin - no fun. I have implemented my own surveillance system, still requires some fine tuning with Boian's stuff but I have not investigated the skining sysem this far. Does someone have a Camouflage Skin?

Why is so frigging hard to figure out which exact products ship with each VCL subscription? Why can't DevExpress place a simple grid matrix on the website that shows, for each VCL subscription package, which exact products are included (treelist, vertical grid, quantum grid, VPS, etc)??? It's marketing 101 - show a matrix of what you get with each package.

This decade-long user can't figure out what ships with what. The marketing pages are a nightmare.

In addition to Scott's requests can you also clearly detail what compilers are supported. I have just realised that Delphi 6 & 2006 seem to no longer be supported. Did I miss something?

Scott has a point.

It could be that the separate VCL product pages have not been update yet. The product page for the ExpressQuantumGrid makes no mention of what's new in v2011.1, neither does the product page for the ExpressBars.

It would be nice to now what has changed since the latest beta.

All souces date to may 17, before the last RC/Beta. Looks like they just updated the installer and shipped the RC...

Donovan, yes, you missed a discussion a view weeks ago. D7, D2007, D2010, XE and 2009 too I think, but the last I don't know for sure.

In the original suggestion, we had D7, D2007 and XE.

Anyway, Thank you devex. I am happy so far - forgotten to mention.
