Tamarack Associates is pleased to announce that HREF Tools Corp. has acquired the development and marketing rights to the Rubicon 2 Full Text Search Engine library of Delphi components. The Rubicon search engine was first released in 1996 and quickly became the leading search engine for Delphi and C++ Builder developers. Rubicon components are used in a wide range of applications created by firms ranging in size from independent developers to Fortune 500 companies.

Tamarack Associates has a long history of working with HREF Tools. The companies have cross licensed and marketed each other's components since 1997. "The key factors in selecting HREF Tools to continue the development of Rubicon was their outstanding reputation, sole focus on Delphi components, and the trust between us that has grown over the years" according to Deven Hickingbotham, President of Tamarack Associates.

"HFEF Tools is excited about this opportunity to expand our line of Delphi components," said Ann Lynnworth, President of HREF Tools Corp., adding that "HREF Tools has already released a set of Delphi 2007 upgrade components for Rubicon and Delphi 2009 support is planned for beta release by mid-March, 2009.
