A while ago I announced in the Soft Gems Forum my decision to shut it down. I think it is time to move on. It's a constant security risk and there are better sources for answers on the Web (e.g. my top favorit www.stackoverflow.com).
Virtual Treeview 5.4.0 has been released and with that release I'll step back officially from maintaining the Virtual Treeview component. I moved to C++/C#/Objective-C projects a few years ago already and have hence no motivation to develop the control further. I simply don't use it anymore.
GraphicEx has not got much love in the past years but there are still quite a number of users who still have it in their code base. This however means GraphicEx must be updated to compile with the latest compilers/IDEs. Additionally, some bug fixes have been incorporated, plus some enhancements, creating what I internally called GraphicEx II. So far however I have never found the time to publish those changes.
Years ago I was working on a project that required XML files to specify a graphical user interface (GUI) based on SWT and Eclipse, written in Java. Comming from the Windows world and being familiar with resource files I thought it would be a cool idea to use those resource files (*.rc) to generate the GUI dialogs. This would allow reusing already designed dialogs to save some time. For this task I needed a parser that was able to recognize the content of resource files.
