"Inprise Corporation (Nasdaq: INPR), today announced that it is developing a high performance Linux application development environment that will support C, C++, and Delphi development. The project, code named "Kylix", is set for release next year and will be one of the first high performance Rapid Application Development (RAD) development tools for the Linux platform..."

"Inprise is moving forward to deliver application development software for the Linux platform," said Dale Fuller, interim president and CEO of Inprise Corporation. "We believe Project Kylix will define rapid application development for Linux and deliver a fast and powerful path for professional application development on the Linux platform. With the strong heritage of Delphi and C++Builder behind Project Kylix, speed to market for developing applications and porting across Windows and Linux should be significantly increased."

"Project Kylix is currently planned to be a Linux component based development environment for two-way visual development of graphical user interface (GUI), Internet, database, and server applications. Plans are for Project Kylix to be powered by a new high-speed native C/C++/Delphi compiler for Linux and will implement a Linux version of the Borland VCL (Visual Component Library) architecture. The Borland VCL for Linux will be designed to radically speed native Linux application development and simplify the porting of Delphi and C++Builder applications between Windows and Linux."
