FPC version was the same as with 1.6RC2. Removed 1.6RC2, removed the ~/.lazarus folder, installed 1.6, test compile successful.

Thank you Lazarus Team!

Congratulations to all, especially the Lazarus team! 👍

Btw, I'm the first to download the Mac version 😄 (or maybe the counter is lazy to update, it's still 0...)

Advice for Linux users. Some distros contain an older version of ld, that does not work well. If building hangs during linking please see http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,31578.msg202509

Linker needs to be (maybe equal or) above v7.25 it seems. Some distro's have 7.23 as default. That does not work well. Older linkers may work.

Just installed and then tried a rebuild (to use my extra components)
which gives me this error:
Fatal: Kann sslsockets nicht finden verwendet von fphttpclient. Make sure all ppu files of a package are in its output directory. ppu im falschen Verzeichnis=D:\Dev\Lazarus\fpc\3.0.0\units\i386-win32\fcl-net\sslsockets.ppu..

RC2 worked without problems, so should I go back?

Problem was solved by making a CLEAN install of LNET 0.6.6 !

By the way, I think it is a good time to change link "What's New" at Lazarus Homepage

I changed a year ago to Lazarus with a large project  containing 250000 lines of code and thirty components but was not sure whether Lazarus would be a viable option.
Lazarus  has proved a rock solid alternative.
Lazarus 1.6 has been installed and works perfectly.
I am grateful.
Thank  you Lazarus and FPC teams. Well done. :) David
