Three new BDE related tips from the former Delphi Pool added
Three new tips from the former Delphi Pool have been added to the Delphi Tips database, starting with tip #211. All the tips relate to the BDE (Borland Database Engine). One lists the meaning of the numerous error codes, the second provides an overview of the BDE functions while the last describes how to get rid of the BDE from an application. Given that the BDE is deprecated I'm not going to publish any more BDE tips from the Delphi Pool unless anyone asks.

v3.1.1 of the Stream Extension Classes has been released. The units, demos and unit tests have been checked for 64 bit compiler compatibility and the units are compatible with the VCL and FireMonkey frameworks. The uses clauses of the units have been tweaked to prefix RTL unit names with the appropriate namespaces on Delphi XE2 and later. A demo has had Unicode related bug fixed. Both original demos have had some minor appearance changes. A new FireMonkey demo has been added.
