On the eve of the release of Microsoft's Visual Studio .net software development suite, tool maker Borland Software pledged to add support for Microsoft's .net development environment in future versions of its products.

Borland plans to release versions of Borland Delphi, Borland C++ Builder and other development products that will be capable of building .net applications for Intel-based systems.

The products will include support for Microsoft's .net Framework, the environment needed to run applications built for .net. That would also include support for ASP.net, Microsoft's server software for Web hosting, as well as industry standards such as XML, Borland said.

The development tools will also include support for the Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL), an intermediary format for turning applications written in other languages into .net programs. Microsoft has said its own Visual Studio .net will allow developers to write applications in more than 20 different programming languages; those applications would be compiled into MSIL before they can run in the .net environment.

Microsoft chairman and chief software architect Bill Gates is set to officially launch Visual Studio .net, along with the final version of the .net Framework, at an event planned for 13 February.
