Seeking App Developer

We are actively seeking a developer to take over HM NIS Edit development. It is written in Delphi 5 (ANSI). We would like to update it to Delphi 2009 or later (Unicode) and continue working on it to work with current and future NSIS Unicode scripts. Installer / Format

HM NIS Edit Portable is packaged in a Installer so it will automatically detect an existing installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.
