Hi Ashwin,

Yes, VP is still around, but it's effectively abandonware. It generates W32 executables that still run on W64, but Allan has no intention of ever updating it. I still use it for the programs that process my hitchhike statistics, but those programs only contain minimal amounts of Pascal, most of the code is in-line assembler, including sh*tloads of DB's to allow me to use MMX, XMM and YMM registers. I do not use FPC, as it's incompatible with my code, and the IDE isn't a shadow of the VP IDE.

As for this site, it's about as alive as VP, as you can now see yourself.

Kind regards,

Robert
