Embarcadero has announced that it acquire Castalia for Delphi and Usertility from TwoDesk Software. Embarcadero will integrate the productivity features of Castalia into RAD Studio’s integrated development environment (IDE) to enhance and optimize the coding experience for both Object Pascal and C++. RAD Studio will also feature Usertility, a powerful and easy to integrate service for monitoring app usage. This acquisition delivers on Embarcadero’s commitment to developer productivity by enabling RAD Studio users to get integrated support for these great third-party solutions, which will be sold and supported by Embarcadero.

Castalia provides the Rad Studio Delphi developer live syntax checking as well as other assorted IDE software tools. Usertility provides drop-in application usage analytics for software written in Delphi, where and how many active users, does the software crash, version information, as well as other stats that a developer needs when going to market to answer those types of questions.

The purchase of these products will close out the two desk software company but will add strong software tools for the developer in the long run.
