Significant step forward . Now we need more detailed optional RTTI, anonymous methods and attributes ^^. Bye bye Delphi.

Bye bye Delphi.Recently I bought Object Pascal Handbook (by Marco Canto) and plan to use it exclusively with FPC/Lazarus, so wonder if there are some more features besides the ones listed above which are not (yet) supported in FPC?
Not many. Note that there are and always will be some quirks between FPC and Delphi but not anything (as it stands..) that can't be solved both ways by an experienced programmer that is not afraid to read documentation (ok, there's the limiting factor) or sound advice on this forum.
And now for something completely different but on subject and very opinionated:...
Let me explain I use both Delphi and FPC for a very very long time professionally. (Yes, Both)
Not really. It was about two years ago during a FPC hackathon when it turned out the hotel where we staying had a bunch of peacocks. They were very noisy and annoying. ... and sb proposed to call it "Pestering Peacock", and that stuck
I envision something like "FPC 3.1.0 'Ice Beer' has been released" Personally, I really liked pascal community (fpc, lazarus, mseide ... and so on) staying away from giving fancy names to their releases.I don't really understand this new modern trend of giving meaningless names to releases.
varies between copy con program.pp program XXX;begin end.crtl-z , fp, Notepad, D7, D2007 XE2 and Lazarus.Honest. Very Honest. Depends.
Nope. It's - server side - Debian based linuxes atm.
That's interesting in a sense you have not jumped to the latest called 'Go lang'.
