Delphi For Android Going Open Source

After a lot of consideration, research etc I've decided to release DelphiDroid (Delphi for Android) as open source. The project is now available for download from the Google Code project page over sub-version.

Over the next couple of days I will release:

- Guide to how the tool works
- A Road Map
- Contribution Guide

Is it ready for production use yet?

No not at all, there are still ALOT of work to be done before its ready for use to write a full application with.

Please subscribe to the development mailing list or contact me if you wish to help.

How are you planning to make money?

By offering my services as a software developer and accept donations etc.

Why do you have to use c# for the compiler portion ?
Is there something that Delphi is not capable of doing, but csharp can do ?

The new compiler is written in Free Pascal.
