Do you gMarathon guys need updated IBO? I thought Marco Menardi was there,

Do you mean the gMarathon development is using Delphi 3? Why?
The D3 problem is not a matter of "not supported", it is a bug in D3 that
it doesn't properly support object interfacing (iUnknown), which is used
for the visual controls in IBO 4. It's a fairly fatal flaw, making D3 a
bad choice.

I agree, IBQuery is a very elegant tool and I believe its owner was talking
of making it an opensource project at some point.
