I added some questions to the bug report as it was a bit unclear. Thanks.

The necessity of recompilation with Lazarus when adding new packages/components is not touted as an advantage. It is a result of the IDE being truly cross-platform, and so not able to rely on Windows dll trickery to add component packages (.bpl-type packages) dynamically on-the-fly. What Delphi does with Windows .bpls cannot be done with Linux .so or Mac .dylib libraries transparently or effortlessly.
It is possible that some clever FPC/Lazarus developers will implement this in a cross-platform way in the future, but it is a hope, not a guarantee.
Although Delphi can now compile for a few non-Windows platforms, the IDE remains a Windows executable, and so is able to communicate with design and runtime packages dynamically.
However one advantage of the Lazarus approach is that you can recompile a new IDE and run the latest trunk version (surprisingly stable) in only a few seconds to get cutting edge functionality, without paying a cent, or waiting for a commercial release cycle for a new version. If Lazarus were a C++ compiler/IDE that took several minutes to recompile, this would clearly be a serious disadvantage, but with the Pascal recompilation time on modern machines being only a few seconds, the apparent disadvantage means little.

Seems like a feature that was added at the expense of simplicity.
No it wasn't. As Howard explained, it was out of necessity.

What necessity? My assertion was why hide components at all. What is the justification for that? And yes, I understand cross-platform compatibility... but regardless of which platform I program in, I wouldn't understand or expect why some components are hidden based on the form or unit or module I am currently working with.
I guess BigChimp points to the recompilation. Regarding component hiding, installing a component package shouldn't hide existing one unless it's removed as well while installing the new one. What may happen is that some components are hidden because it has no meaning (and might cause problems) in certain designer environment. For example, it's meaningless to drop a TButton to a data module since it violates the purpose of data module and even it can't be initialized properly.

Hey, congrats for Lazarus 1.2.4!
I've developed a component for Laz-1.2.0 and it was a relief to see it compiling and installing flawlessly in Laz-1.2.4!

But do you have some idea of when the next release will be available? And would that be the trunk version?

Is there no 1.2.4 release for OS X PowerPC? The website seems to imply there is, but the Sourceforge link provided on the download page (http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/Lazarus%20Mac%20OS%20X%20powerpc/Lazarus%201.2.4/) does not seem to exist, and 1.2.2 is the latest listed on http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/Lazarus%20Mac%20OS%20X%20powerpc/.

Lazarus for me very good


But Lazarus could have a project

create desktop application using HTML5 feature to create a graphical user interface and control is the responsibility of pascal


I could work to create the logic of the program in pascal and create the graphical interface in HTML5

GUI widgets lazarus is good HTML5 will be more better

I'm not talking about the CGI that needs a browser

Design example http://appjs.com/

In JavaFX already have this feature


sorry not speak english and beginner in programming

Sf is only a mirror, and due to variation in uploading, sometimes don't get mirrored to SF properly. See ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/fpc/dist/2.6.4/powerpc-macosx/
