Dropping Support for Windows 2000

Until now CodeSnip has supported all Windows OSs from Windows 2000.

It's probable that I'll only be able to support XP and later in CodeSnip 5 when its released later this year. My stats show that no-one who updates CodeSnip is still using Windows 2000, so this shouldn't be a problem.

But, if you are still using the OS and this change will cause a problem please leave a comment.

CodeSnip Website Launched

CodeSnip now has its own website at

It is a micro-site on the codesnip sub-domain of

The site is currently in beta, so please check it out. I'd welcome feedback about the usability and if you find any bugs - just leave a comment on this post.

I've tried for a responsive, HTML5 based, design, so the site should adapt to different display resolutions providing JavaScript is enabled. I'm still working on the mobile sized design, but the others seem to be OK.

The plan is that the new site will replace the old CodeSnp pages on The rationale is that CodeSnip is by far my most popular program, and it is outgrowing the space available within the framework of the main site. (BTW I'm considering a radical overhaul of to present all the applications more concisely).

Comments please.

New CodeSnip Blog

Welcome to this new blog for and about the CodeSnip code bank program and related items.

Here's the new home for information and news about the program. Until now CodeSnip information has been dominating the DelphiDabbler Programming Blog and kind of subverting its original intention. So it seems to be time to pull the CodeSnip content out into its own blog - and here it is.

I'm planning to use this blog for:

  • Announcing new releases and bug fixes.
  • Current developments.
  • Discussing proposed new features.
  • Changes to CodeSnip's web pages.
  • News about the Online Code Snippets database.

More soon!
