    Win XP app fails to start -- missing bcrypt.dll

    This might have something to do with newer OpenSSL Dlls switching from using the Legacy CryptoAPI to using BCryptGenRandom for generating OS Random numbers.

    Delphi compiler need to be opensourced

    Lol, at least we now agree on a common fact that for now Delphi doesn't have a PurePascal EdDSA implementation.

    Seems you have made up your mind that nothing good and optimal can come out of non native code. In this case, there is very little I can say to convince you otherwise. By the way, the current media player I use is written in JavaScript and it runs beautifully for me on both my Windows and Linux boxes.

    Really? Do we have to go down this road again? ECDSA (Elliptical Curve DSA) <> EdDSA (Edwards Curve DSA). It has a lot of use cases as ECDSA and it is been used in Monero and Nano to mention but a few.

    Really? I have seen highly performant programs including media players written in .NET and even JavaScript.

    This implements just ECDSA using only secp256r1 curve.

    @Joseph MItzen you just analysed everything perfectly from my point of view. 👍

    Yes It is my project and no it doesn't implement Edwards curves.

    Asymmetric Cryptography especially stuffs involving elliptical curves like Edwards curves.

    Unfortunately, the CodeTyphoon team seems more focused on the IDE than the compiler.

    1. Invest enough to cover the cost of further development and improvements to the compiler? At what gain? It's not like the Delphi ecosystem is really booming. 2. An example of such are Cryptographic Libraries and please don't tell me that Delphi can utilize C/C++ libraries because you and I know how unfriendly that can be (especially finding already compiled libraries for other platforms other than windows) coupled with the problem of distributing the extra binary files. Using C++ libraries was ok at a time when Delphi was Windows only but please we are in the Cross Platform era now. And please do note that I am referring to free OpenSource maintained libraries not closed source sharewares.

    While I feel it is not possible for Delphi to open source it's compiler, I highly doubt there are skilled personnels even willing to invest time to improve it for free. The bitter truth is that unfortunately the Delphi ecosystem is not as friendly and lively as other languages ecosystem. A glaring example is the availability of OpenSource libraries to achieve certain operations is no where as vast as that we have in C#, Java or even C++. The VCL and RTL is a different story though.
  13. I just hope this nice plugins will not be killed slowly by Embarcadero after integration in the IDE like they did with Castalia.

    because I was been too meticulous.

    Am not sure he is still active on the project. There are open pull requests which are yet to be attended to by him.
