Fixed possible threading issues

RealThinClient SDK 2.76 is ready for download from the SVN repository and the download section, and here is a list of changes/fixes:

1) Fixed a possible AV on thread termination caused by calling Free from within the thread object. This fix introduces some changes in the way threads are marked for termination. Now, a thread object should never use FREE to release itself from memory from its Work method, but instead only return TRUE to signal the worker thread that it wants to be released.... read more

RTC SDK files re-packaged

To reduce the size of the main RealThinClient SDK package file (which will often be updated), I've extracted IDE Help files (Delphi/BCB and BDS) into separate ZIP files and removed them from SVN, leaving only the main CHM file in the main package and in the SVN repository. This repackaging has reduced the main source code file from 3,8 MB to 1,6 MB and the initial SVN download by several MB.

RealThinClient SDK on

As you can see, the RealThinClient SDK is now available on SourceForge. IMHO, this is the best place to start forming a community of active RTC SDK developers and contributors, which will drive the components further than any single developer could.
