Lazarus 1.4.4 Release
« on: October 06, 2015, 02:37:40 pm »
The Lazarus team is glad to announce the release of Lazarus 1.4.4.

This release was built with FPC 2.6.4, same as the previous
release Lazarus 1.4.2.

Here is the list of fixes for Lazarus 1.4.4:
http://wiki.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.4_fixes_branch#Merged_revisions_for_1.4.4

Here is the list of changes for Lazarus and Free Pascal:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.4.0_release_notes
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/User_Changes_2.6.4

Important note for Mac OS X: OS X 10.10 Yosemite no longer supports the default debugging format of FPC 2.6.4 (-g stabs). Lazarus now uses -gw (dwarf) instead on darwin.

The release is available for download on SourceForge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/

Choose your CPU, OS, distro and then the "Lazarus 1.4.4" directory.
Windows x64 users: please use the 32 bit installer if possible. See
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Windows_Programming_Tips#FPC_2.6.x.2FLazarus_warning_.28Missing_support_for_SEH.29
for more details.

Minimum requirements:
Windows:       98, 2k, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 32 or 64bit.
               On 64bit it is recommended to use the 32bit IDE.
               Win98 and WinNT IDE needs building with flag -dWIN9XPLATFORM.
FreeBSD/Linux: gtk 2.8 or qt4.5, 32 or 64bit.
Mac OS X:      10.5 to 10.10, 10.9+ debugging requires -gw,
               LCL only 32bit, non LCL apps can be 64bit.

The svn tag is
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/tags/lazarus_1_4_4

For people who are blocked by SF, the Lazarus releases from SourceForge
are mirrored at:
ftp://freepascal.dfmk.hu/pub/lazarus/releases/
and later at (after some time for synchronization)
http://michael-ep3.physik.uni-halle.de/Lazarus/releases/
and

Windows users with Windows 7 or up may in some cases need to change the debugger:

You may try the following setting: http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/GDB_Debugger_Tips#gdb.exe_has_stopped_working

Or (32 bit) download an alternative GDB:

Why an xxxxxx. EXE to download  the new Lazarus ?
My virusscanner rings always twice.. the most malicious files are exe files.
Please can you al new versions repack to a Zip, Rar of 7Z ?

Some anti-viruses have an option to temporary shut down the anti virus shield.

If there was a zip, there would still be exe inside.

You can download the source code (that is available as zip), but then you need to build it yourself. And for that you need fpc.exe.

If you have the previous version of lazarus (which in this case has the same fpc version), then you can replace the source in your install, and rebuild it. That should be possible, but I never tried. (keep fpc and gdb (mingw folder))

As usual: either false positive or your system is infected already (some viruses attach a hook that will infect every exe files found). If the hash is the same as provided from the download source (no idea where it is), then it must be false positive. In that case, try lowering the heuristic settings of your antivirus. If it doesn't have one, consider replacing with another which has. Antivirus without tunable heuristic is a garbage.
