Global changes

  • We have joined installations for all versions of RAD Studio (XE...XE8, 10, 10.1, 10.2, and 10.3 Rio, Delphi and C++Builder) in one single installer.
    You can Download Clever Internet Suite and install on any desired version of RAD Studio IDE.
  • .NET Compact Framework is no longer supported. The minimum .NET Framework version is 4.0. Download Clever Internet .NET Suite
  • The library was splitted on design-time and runtime packages. Starting from now, the components can be used by RAD Studio form designer in 64-bit projects.
  • The basic socket components were replaced and improved. The class inheritance was changed. Please see the Help documentation for more details.
  • The source code structure was changed. Starting from now, the sources are placed in the following folders: common, design, packages, resources and ssh.
    To compile the source code project, navigate to the packages folder, choose the corresponding IDE version subfolder, e.g., D103 for Delphi 10.3 Rio,
    open and compile both the clinetsuite_103.dproj and dcl_clinetsuite_103.dproj projects. Finally, install dcl_clinetsuite_103.dproj to your RAD Studio IDE.
  • The SSH and SFTP component files were moved to the main clinetsuite package. The clinetsuitessh package was removed from the installation.
  • A set of cryptographic classes were added: Cipher (and its descendants), Hash, Mac, KeyExchange, Signature and many more.

Known problems and restrictions

  • FTP client and server - data connection uses IpV4 protocol only.
  • Socks5 firewall - supports IpV4 only.
  • The HTTP RIO component is available only starting from Delphi 2005 / C++Builder 2006.
  • The SOAP encryption is available only on Win32 platform.
  • The SOAP encryption requires an external library clcryptext.dll that is included to the Clever Internet Suite installation.
    This library represents managed code that is wrapped by Win32 functions.
    The source code for this library can be downloaded separately at website.
  • The current version of the Clever Internet .NET Suite uses the Bouncy Castle Cryptographic C# API for ASN1 encoding functionality.
    This library is used when importing/exporting RSA private keys. If you are not planning to use the crytographic functionality,
    simple remove the BouncyCastle.Crypto.dll library from you project References list.
