Internet Components - Clever Internet Suite v 8.4 (November 25, 2016)

The Clever Internet Suite Version 8.4 represents the expansion of the previous version 8.3.

In the new version 8.4 we have fixed some existing problems in the CookieManager and MailMessage components, socket and cryptography engine. Starting from version 8.0 the library is splitted on design-time and run-time packages. This allows you to use the components in RAD Studio VCL form designer for both 32-bit and 64-bit application platforms. The socket components structure was changed in order to implement new SSH (Secure Shell) encryption. New properties and methods have been added. Some existing properties, methods and events have been renamed or deleted in order to achieve better usability and clear Clever Internet Suite structure.

New Features

  • RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin support;
  • One single installation package for all versions of RAD Studio;
  • DKIM - sign, verify, generate public/private key pair, DNS txt record
  • FTP with Unicode support - UTF8 and custom encoding, autodetection mode;
  • OAUTH - the ability to save/load the authorization token.

New Components

  Component   Description
 DKIM Detects email spoofing by providing a mechanism to allow receiving mail exchangers to check that incoming mail from a domain is authorized by that domain's administrators.
 Encryptor Allows you to Encrypt / Decrypt and Sign / Verify data with X509 digital certificate and specified security algorithm.
 HttpRIO New HTTP RIO component with SOAP Security support was implemented.

Global changes

  • We have joined installations for all versions of RAD Studio (XE...XE8, 10 Seattle and 10.1 Berlin, Delphi and C++Builder) in one single installer. You can Download it and install the library on any desired version of RAD Studio IDE.
  • The library was splitted on design-time and runtime packages. Starting from now, the components can be used by RAD Studio form designer in 64-bit projects.
  • The basic socket components were replaced and improved. The class inheritance was changed. Please see the Help documentation for more details.

  • Socks5 firewall - supports IpV4 only;
  • The TclHttpRio component is available only starting from Delphi 2005 / C++Builder 2006;

  • The SOAP encryption is available only on Win32 platform;
  • The SFTP client component and SSH engine are available only on Win32 platform;
