Chrome, Object Oriented Pascal for Visual Studio trial released

Chrome trial version with Visual Studio .NET integration has been released today. If you’re an Object Oriented Pascal developer or a Delphi developer I’d highly recommend you give it a try.

For those of you using DPack with VS already, the good news is that latest DPack version is already fully compatible with Chrome.

“After over a year of research and development, RemObjects Software is proud to finally unveil Chrome, its long awaited Object Pascal language for the .NET and Mono Platforms. Chrome takes all that we have come to appreciate about the Pascal Language into the twenty-first century and places it right where it belongs, inside the Visual Studio IDE.

Chrome provides many features that improve and expand upon what has been available in classic Pascal and Object Pascal compilers. Some of its most notable features include Class Contracts, Generics and many more.

Chrome integrates fully with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Visual Studio 2005. A free Command Line Edition is also available.

Visit to find out how Chrome will change the way you develop your software.

Download you trial version today.
