There have been rumors, and some of them are true….
I’m excited to announce today that Embarcadero Technologies has acquired Castalia and Usertility. The official press release is here: http://www.embarcadero.com/press-releases/embarcadero-acquires-castalia-and-usertility-from-twodesk-software
I know this brings up some questions. I’ll try to answer the most common of them:
What does this mean for current Castalia customers?
Customers with a current maintenance subscription for Castalia will continue to receive updates & fixes for the life of their subscription. In fact, there is an update coming VERY soon that addresses the large memory consumption issues that some of you have have been seeing – I’ll let you know when it’s available.
Is Castalia still available for purchase?
Castalia is available as part of the Bonus Pack for RAD Studio and Delphi XE7 purchased through Embarcadero. It is not available for purchase from TwoDesk.
What does this mean for Usertility customers?
First (and most important), the Usertility service continues to function.
Since Usertility is now an Embarcadero product, Usertility customers are now customers of Embarcadero instead of TwoDesk. At some point in the near future, we will be moving Usertility from TwoDesks’s servers to Embarcadero’s. We’re working on a plan to do that with minimal downtime, and we’ll let customers know when that’s going to happen.
Will Usertility be available for new signups?
Yes. Stay tuned to Embarcadero for more details on that.
What’s Jacob doing now?
I’m working with Embarcadero. I intend to stay closely involved in the future direction and delivery of this integration and look forward to bringing these next versions to market with Embarcadero.
