In the meantime, will the existing version work with D2009 if I just replace 'string' with 'AnsiString' everywhere in the source code? Or is there something other than Unicode strings that's radically different in D2009 that would prevent SBB from working properly?

Sorry, but we cannot guarantee that. SBB has not been thoroughly tested with D2009 yet. The only thing we can say at the moment is that it SHOULD work at first glance. However, besides simply replacing 'string' with 'AnsiString' you might face with similar tasks such as the need of implementing the corresponding TAnsiStringList class.

You would need to replace also all PChar- and Char- related properties, variables and operations. And I don't think this is enough.

In other words, it makes no sense to do this yourself. We will release the beta version of SecureBlackbox 7.0 in November.

November? Great! Thanks guys. I haven't upgraded my version in a while, guess this is a good reason to. :-)

Revisiting the topic. What's the current plan for the v7 release for D2009? I see it's still in beta.

SBB7 release is expected by the end of February. It will include "official" support for D2009.

Is the D2009 version close?

It's close, yes. Release is planned for this week. It's already being built and tested.
