New LMD 2024.0 installer (including Delphi/C++Buillder/RAD Studio 12 Athens support) are available now in customer download areas. Trials and executable demos in public download will be updated during this week.
The main changes in this release are the introduction of our new Universal Installer technology and huge improvements to the NG Packs. The HTMLPack in particular has been completely redesigned and contains a large number of new components that now fully reflect the functionality of the discontinued TextPack. The new NG DemoCenter was also introduced for the NG Packs, which now contains all demos for the NG components centrally (with the exception of NG ConnectionPack). With regard to the installers, installation programs based on the old technology will be provided for a limited time (in case of problems with the new variants).
A list of all changes can be found on LMD VCL What’s new page.

If you are using a previous LMD release (older than 2021, e.g. LMD 2020): Please make sure that this release is completely uninstalled before using the new 2024 installer (especially LMD-Tools and VCL Complete user - otherwise you might receive messages about missing package files (e.g. TextPack) which were available in former releases and which are moved now to a legacy package (but controls are certainly still available)).
