Present status of Indy

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the current status of Indy?  It is installed on 10.4 with no help files.  Pulling (quite a large collection!) of supposed Indy Help files from the net gives .htm files which tell you nothing about the component you are after help on and/or say they have been redirected to a non-extant site; or .chm files which microsoft thinks are variant htm files and deals with inappropriately and unhelpfully.  The Indy components can be put in a programme, but to use values (eg tIdPOP3.Authorise = adAuth (I can't remember the name the .pdf file eventually gave me) only fails to be able to define the value!  It must be hidden somewhere in another Indy file.

Still actively developed (by me).  RAD Studio 10.4 includes an updated trunk version from Indy's GitHub repo from about 2 months ago.

I'm not in charge of, or involved with, how Embarcadero incorporates help files for 3rd party components.  But I do recall that Indy's help files are included, somewhere.  Although, Indy's documentation is quite dated, it hasn't been updated in many years.  There have been property/interface changes made over the years that still need to be documented.

Thanks, Remy.

Tim Frost has kindly found Indy Help under Delphi/Help/Third Party Help.

I had finally found a 2012 PDF Delphi in Depth, but the new one on the system is very nice - many thanks, Tim!
