Why not make installation LHelp by default? I think, if we have all chm-files, it is possible to adjust environment on use it...
Isn't it already (at least if you use the installer)?

Minimum requirements:
Windows:       98, 2k, Vista, 7, 32 or 64bit

The installer won't run on WinMe (probably any Win9x).

Lazarus has grown into adulthood now!

As a side note:
It has also grown in size, I can rember the days that the installer was 35 Mb (and I still used a 59k modem for downloading it). Now the installer is a whooping 105Mb!

Happy coding everybody!

But where can I find the Lazarus intallers for Mac OS X PPC? Currently, this folder only contains FPC and FPCSRC.

We don't have a powerpc Mac to build Lazarus. If you have one you can build it from svn or from the sources zip. I will add a hint on sourceforge.

Yes, lhelp is included in all installers/packages.

Well 20MB where added by the help files.

There would be many many options.
- Installer without ppu, and build them on client side (during install, but install may run an extra 5 to 15 minutes, depending on hardware...)
- this could even be, without fpc ppu. But then make it 15 to 45 minutes

Letting the IDE build the ppu on first compile => get complaints "lazarus is so slow"

Even a long running installer will upset many people...

Offering even more different installers, well people wont know which one....
So it has to be one size fits all

It wasn't meant as criticisme, just looking back, and feeling a bit nostalgic.

Thank you for this information. I tried to build Lazarus from the svn checkout, but unfortunately I got a lot of error messages only.

I assume that my Lazarus version (0.9.30.4) is already too old for this task. Would you recommend to use a snapshot version for building Lazarus 1.0RC1, and if so, which one?
function GetRandomNumber: integer; // xkcd.com
begin
  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;

By the way, why do the snapshot versions of Lazarus support PPC processors - although you don't have a powerpc Mac to build Lazarus?
function GetRandomNumber: integer; // xkcd.com
begin
  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;

Excellent release. Help worked out the box ...great news! All my components except a third party Component LAZStatemachine0.0 installed without issues. I'll troubleshoot   LAZStatemachine0.0  when I get time.

Congrats to all involved.

As it happens, yesterday I was working on getting fpdoc from trunk to
generate proper CHMs again when RC1 came out

It seems the major fpdoc restructures have been finished (78 patches since
2.6.0, mostly by Michael), and the docs now generate again.  As soon as
these changes can be considered validated by this release they can be merged
to fixes26.

So for testing purposes I generated a snapshot based on "fixes26" FPC
source, and due to the special occasion also the Lazarus RC1 tag.  This is
also the first release to contain the lazutils.chm

Please test an report irregularities in this thread or in the maillist.
