So it's more geared towards looser coupling, a more scripting like approach. I guess if I know the external code I want to use at compile time then linking to a DLL in the classic fashion is generally preferable. 

For me the most promising feature is the ability to link C libs statically. I'd love to have self-contained Delphi EXEs with OpenSSL, for example.

Distributing DLLs with an exe is really very trivial. Either in the same directory as the exe or a sub directory as an assembly using manifests.

 

Linking .obj files to an exe is a tricksy business. You need to supply the C RTL and for complex libs that is often very hard to achieve. And then on x64 you have the longstanding bug that the Delphi compiler doesn't pick up pdata sections with the exception tables. So exceptions in the C code can just terminate the process.

I think it is interesting but we need 32 bit.

Wish granted! 1.3 released, 32-bit support and more. Big update! :classic_cool:
