I've been a long time user of Chilkat and to be honest, I am very satisfied with the amount of updates and functions you have added over the years. And now I am very excited with Chilkat Dynamic Shared Object.

Right now, I use chilkat in Java (most of the time). The pain however is I need to do different compiles for different operating systems. Will this upcoming update solve this? Will I be able to target different operating systems from a single source?

Also I noticed that you have a library available in C++ Builder XE3. Can this library be used in XE4? If so, can it be used to target multiple operating systems as well?

I don't think it change anything regarding Java because the Chilkat Java lib is already implemented as a native shared lib called by the Java classes located in the chilkat.jar

I haven't tested it yet, but I suspect the existing Chilkat libs for C++ Builder XE2/3 should also work w/ XE4. I haven't delved into XE4 yet, but my 1st guess is that if XE4 is replicating MAC OS X's concept of universal libs, then it should be possible to eventually provide a cross-platform Chilkat C++ XE4 lib.
