No, the point is that the IBO packages would support whatever sub-version you have on your disk, just because Delphi updates aren't *supposed* to change library names! Borland's explanation sounds so LAME. There are scores, if not hundreds of 3P components out there, a good many of them using Websnap.

Selfishly, I'm glad I gave up on Websnap and reverted to good ol' WebBroker. I expected WS to get fixed but I sure didn't expect it to get renamed.

I think we can IFDEF the IBO package file/BPG though. I seem to have seen it happen somewhere...
