About internet components
« on: December 25, 2019, 02:30:30 pm »
What they characterize Lnet,Synapse or Indy? I search components for synchoronus and easy asynchronous connections with liberal licence.
(and SSL) Especially NNTP and samples

I find Synapse easier to use.  It seems that it is not updated anymore but it still works.

I started with Indy because it had HTTPS already in 2004,  and in other components (I mainly reviewed ICS, Synapse was Linux only back then) that lagged.

I never had too big problems except some thread safety issues (in 2004-5) that got exposed due to Hyperthreading. It was quickly fixed after. Over the years I migrated from Indy9 to 10

Not quite: it will still receive necessary - security - updates.
But it is feature complete and extremely stable so normal maintenance is not really necessary.

Nowadays I prefer fcl-web/fcl-net. Note that the ssl support for those has Synapse heritage.

When you ask a question that is actually answered in the documentation, you are either lazy or a moron.

Good to know.

The last time I looked last release was 2012.  Didn't search for SVN/GIT commits though.  ::)

So see for yourself.  Note there won't be a "release" update.

And it has NNTP components, both client and server implementations.
