They are binary compatible. You can install a BDS 2006 component with no source code, and it
should work from BCB 2007. This is very nice, as you don't have to wait for component vendors to
release new versions of their products.
I thought that since the compiler was updated that C++2007 was not binary compatable.

C++ code is not binary compatible. Delphi code should be. Bpls are
usually Delphi code.

C++ code is not binary compatible. In general, bpl files are
generated with Delphi code and the Delphi code is meant to be binary
compatible.
