KYLIX is currently not being developed by Borland. I'm not even sure
they're still supporting it OR selling it. There is a guy that is currently
providing patches for the product(third party), but KYLIX 3 is the last
version so far.
I suspect that Borland is going to eventually drop KYLIX in favor of .NET
and it's c# product. There are strong indications that the MONO project
will run vb.net, c#.net, etc, etc, etc, so there's no need for a delphi
(pascal) compiler under Linux if true.
