Embarcadero Dev C++ Open Source Project

Embarcadero have recently announced that they are becoming a key player in the open source project Dev C++ and have created there own fork at

https://sourceforge.net/projects/embarcadero-devcpp/

This is an interesting development. It shows that the company is aware of the open source route and is actively testing how open source can “fit” in their business model. Dev C++ (at least as it currently stands) is based around the Mingw (windows port of Gnu C++ ) compiler. (Remember the main Embarcadero RAD Studio product is based on the clang C++ compiler family).
