In this short chapter I've explored some of the most significant changes to COM support in Delphi 2009, including the new RIDL files, the different role of type libraries, and some of the updated Wizards and IDE tools. I didn't have room to describe the COM technology in any detail, as this used to take two large chapters in my Mastering Delphi series.
Now that we've seen all the changes to the core VCL and its COM subsystem, it is time to focus on the single most interesting visual feature of the VCL in Delphi 2009, the brand new Ribbon control.
