Great, that is good news. Unfortunately, however, I can't find the files for Mac OS X PowerPC. Are they still concealed at SourceForge?

Just updated my install on Linux Mint 16 KDE with the .deb, upgraded great, had all my installed components back in minutes.
Also updated my install in windows 7 and it went perfectly.
I remember the days of installing a new delphi version and the tons of time it took to reinstall all the 3rd party components.
With Lazarus releases I am up and running again in mere minutes. 
Lazarus is what Delphi should have been.

Great work guys :-)

If I forget, I always use the latest stable 32bit version of Lazarus and FPC. At the time of this signature that is Laz 1.2.6 and FPC 2.6.4
OS: Windows 7 64 bit and Linux Mint 16 with KDE 4.12

I'm really happy to read this great news!!!

Just to say I'm currently using Lazarus 1.1 on Fpc 2.7.1 because of the annoing SEH problem.

So I'll update Lazarus 1.0.14 but I'll wait for official release on Fpc 2.7.1

Many thanks!!!

Unit QT4 seems to be missing. I get the following error when I try and build.

lcl/include/qt/cairolcl.inc(2,3) Fatal: Can't find unit qt4 used by CairoLCL

Switching the target to GTK-2 works, but GTK-2 is too slow to be usable, so it's not a solution.

This problem did not exist when I was using 1.2RC2.

Debian Unstable
FPC 2.6.2 from Debian archive
Laz 1.2 from lazarus_1.2.0-0_amd64.deb

Edit:

Tried the RPM version via the alien command. Same thing, unit QT4 missing.

QT4 is not delivered with Lazarus. It must be installed separately before you can use LCL-QT.
Nothing about package dependencies has changed since 1.2RC2. Something else is going on in your system (again).
I also wonder why your GTK2 is so slow. Here it is about as fast as QT.

GTK-2 graphics are known to be slow.

I'm back on 1.2RC2 and had the same problem.

QT4 has been installed on my systems from the start. The problem seems to be the old root access issue. As soon as I gave my user write privileges to the lazarus directory AND configured Build Lazarus for Clean All, then everything worked fine. Now, I can set Build Lazarus back to its default settings and it all builds normally. It seems to require the Clean All setting only once to get the QT4 unit built.

And I don't believe there is anything going on in my system (again), especially considering that these same issues have shown up on three different systems, all installed by Laz Project packages, be they debs or RPMs, with root ownership.  I do think my situation is unusual in that I use Linux, don't build Laz from the svn, use the LuiCairo package, and target QT.

Let me borrow some snorkel's words:

Just updated my install on Debian Linux and Bodhi Linux through the .deb, upgraded great, had all my installed components back in minutes.
Also updated my install on windows 7 and it worked perfectly.
I remember the days of installing a new delphi version and the tons of time it took to reinstall all the 3rd party components.
With Lazarus releases I am up and running again in mere minutes.
Lazarus is what Delphi and Kylix should have been.

Great work guys :-)

Thank to the developers and all community so much!
