Summary of 2015 in short: new product RAD & Installer and website redesign.

This year we released new product (few alphas/betas and later Gold version) called RAD & Installer. R&I is very similar to our top product Visual & Installer. The main difference is target platform and language it uses: V&I is designed for Microsoft Visual Studio and programmed in C# while R&I is for Embarcadero RAD Studio and made in Delphi. We are trying to provide the same features in both products which is not possible every time.

During R&I development (main platform is Windows 8.1 and Embarcadero RAD Studio XE8, Delphi) we lacked a few important controls. The RAD Studio IDE is different than Microsoft's and does not provide components we required. So there was no other way than to write everything by ourselves. We wrote many parts of IDE enhancements from scratch (new controls/components), added new features, improved and fixed a lot of stuff and the result is really amazing.

We have developed really exciting technology and many people got interested into it. They asked us to publish it and we promised (not on this blog but somewhere on the Internet: either on Twitter or some forum) to do so.

And today we kept this promise: we have released two (core) components on CodePlex with full sources!

As RAD & Installer is approaching to final version (1.0.0.1) we decided to publish the Roadmap for this product.

If you are not familiar with R&I here are some details:

R&I is new product of unSigned, s. r. o. which has been in development for some time now.
It is an Embarcadero RAD Studio expert for creating NSIS and Inno Setup installers. It integrates NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) and Inno Setup with Embarcadero RAD Studio IDE and allows you to create and build NSIS and Inno Setup projects right within RAD Studio getting all benefits of common integrated environment.

After some time I decided to use my old blog (powered by Nucleus - btw great job :) and add new stuff to it.
As this blog was intended only for Cooking Witch games (which was our game development studio) now it will also contain posts related to Graphical Installer (both NSIS and Inno Setup), Visual & Installer and other our software and tools.

Also if something interesting but personal appears I will add it here...
