The previous release was Lazarus 1.6.0 which was released at February 18, 2016. Not 1.4.4.
You may want to correct that...

Otherwise congrats on this release for an ever more valuable and usable piece of software to all that helped improve it.
Indeed, even me is actually using it now ;)  :-* 8-) O:-)

Thanks to the Lazarus team for their great work! When looking at the long list of fixes and improvements its impressive!!

When looking into the repository log, it seems that most commits are coming from a handful of developer, I just hope these people will keep their motivation.

Thanks again !
