Small Pieces of DeXter Within DiamondBack


Well, this is true. You can get small pieces of DeXter features within your DiamondBack (Delphi2005). You can get them only if you patched your Diamondback with unofficial patch created by Allen Bauer. This patch itself requires Delphi 2005 Update 3, so ensure you have patched your Diamondback with Update 3, otherwise, it will be fail.

So what the unofficial patch does? The most important things are about performance and stability. The interesting part is that Borland changed BorlandMM, the old ancient slow memory manager with FastMM4, a really fast memory manager replacement created by Pierre le Riche.

The unofficial patch contains eight files, boreditu.dll, Borland.Studio.Vcl.Design.dll, coreide90.bpl, coreide90.jdbg, desingide90.bpl, designide90.jdbg, vclide90.bpl and vclide90.jdbg. You need to download FastMM in order to complete the patch. You can manually install the patch, but it is recomended that you use automatic installer created by Andreas Hausladen.

So how to validate unofficial patch works correctly, its really easy. Just open the Delphi About dialog box and it will say anything. Look at the label located at the bottom of dialog box, its a red colored label said ‘Confidential pre-release version text.

The next interesting thing is about version info. You’ve got different version info for several Borland libraries. Lets look some of them below.

  • bds.exe, 9.0.1935.22056, C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\Bin\
  • boreditu.dll, 9.0.1882.30496, C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\Bin\
  • borland.studio.delphi.dll, 9.0.1935.22056, c:\program files\borland\bds\3.0\bin\
  • coreide90.bpl, 9.0.2043.16517, C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\Bin\
  • coreproide90.bpl, 9.0.1882.30496, c:\program files\borland\bds\3.0\Bin\
  • dbkdebugide90.bpl, 9.0.1935.22056, C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\Bin\
  • dbkdebugproide90.bpl, 9.0.1882.30496, c:\program files\borland\bds\3.0\Bin\
  • delphicoreide90.bpl, 9.0.1882.30496, C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\Bin\
  • designide90.bpl, 9.0.2043.16517, C:\Program Files\Borland\BDS\3.0\Bin\

Have you seen it…? According to the information about Update 3 located at top About dialog box, it has 9.0.1935.22056 version number. So, any versions less than it, definitely is Update 2 version or below and any versions greater than it, definitely is unofficial patch.
