TatukGIS has released version 11 of its GIS Developer Kernel (DK) for Delphi and .NET editions, with updated trial versions and source code samples for evaluators. Version 11 is available to existing customers with active maintenance plan and for purchase by new customers. DK for Delphi and DK for .NET customers with lapsed maintenance may upgrade to version 11 by re-activating maintenance for existing licenses.

Mobile variant is an optional add-on license (price $1,000) to the Desktop variant. DK for Delphi customers interested in converting from Desktop to Desktop+Mobile should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a price quote to synchronize maintenance for the two variants.
