Lazarus 1.1.99 pre release available for download
« on: September 18, 2013, 09:23:01 am »
The Lazarus team would like to announce that it has started the release
preparations for Lazarus 1.2.
The release process will consist of several steps which you can find here:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.2_fixes_branch#Roadmap_to_1.2


We would like to invite people to test the Lazarus 1.1.99 pre-release.

You should treat this release with similar caution as the daily
snapshots. If you wish to participate in the early testing, you should
be prepared  to backup and restore your data.

If you do not feel experienced enough, please wait for the first release
candidate in a couple of weeks. You can still join the testing then.

News in this Version
- http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.2.0_release_notes
- On Windows the installer now allows 2 independent installations.

What we are looking for:
- Crashes of the IDE
- Crashes of your app, provided identical code works flawless, when
compiled with the official Lazarus 1.0 release or the official Lazarus
1.0.12 release.
- Regressions compared to the official Lazarus 1.0 release or the
official Lazarus 1.0.12 release.
   - Does your app behave different or unexpected, where it was working
under the previous released Lazarus
   - Does the IDE react differently (disbehave) when you use it?

Before reporting please check the release notes for any documented changes.
