BORC: The Developer Tools Group of Borland Software Announces the Immediate Availability of the New Turbo Products

The Developer Tools Group of Borland Software announced the immediate availability of its new line of Turbo™ products, offering low-cost, rapid application development capabilities for students, hobbyist developers, occupational developers and individual professionals. Turbo Delphi® for Win32®, Turbo Delphi for .NET, Turbo C++ and Turbo C# are single language versions of Borland Developer Studio, a development environment for Microsoft® Windows® and .NET applications.

The Turbo products combine easy learning with significant productivity gains, providing a fun and accessible environment for developers to rapidly build high performance GUI, Database, Web, and Web Services applications for Microsoft Windows. Turbo Delphi for .NET and Turbo C# also support the Microsoft .NET and ASP.NET platforms. Turbo Delphi, Turbo Delphi for .NET, Turbo C++ and Turbo C# are available immediately in English, French, German and Japanese.

Each Turbo product is available in two editions:

Turbo Explorer editions, available as a free download, are fixed, all-in-one solutions that let programmers learn and develop in a single language and platform environment.
Turbo Professional editions, priced at US$399, are extensible and customizable with over 200 pre-built drag-and-drop components. They are also designed to accept any of thousands of compatible third-party tools, components and plug-ins.
Academic pricing discounts are available to make the Turbo products more accessible to students and educational institutions for cost-effective software development training and education. Student and academic pricing for the Turbo Professional editions begins under US$100.

Robert F. Teitel, a professor in the statistics department at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., recognized the potential value of Turbo for his students’ education. “The new Turbo products suggest renewed vigor in the continued development and support of the Delphi line of software development environments,” said Teitel. “Of course, I’m personally very excited about the return of the free, downloadable explorer version – which I’ve always called the “student edition” – of the single personality products. I’m planning to teach a multi-lingual [Delphi and C++ for the Win32 platform] introductory computer science course this fall using BDS2006 in the computer laboratory, and anticipate that my students will download the matching explorer editions.”

“The enthusiastic response to Turbo’s return has been overwhelming from professional developers, hobbyists and educators around the globe,” commented David Intersimone, vice president of developer relations and chief evangelist of Borland’s Developer Tools Group.
