Thanks for the new release. I have a couple of questions: do I need to remove the old packages (I'll be downloading the linux 32 debs) before upgrading and do I need to download all 3 packages or just the lazarus package?

Thanks.

Compiling well under Ubuntu x64, no more errors about missing libraries.

Hello Lazarus team,

I just installed over the 1.6.0 in Linux Mint 32 bit but I am getting some warning about LCLBase what does it mean?

The first few lines of a default project1.lpr in obfpc mode looks like this
Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. program Project1;
  2.  
  3. {$mode objfpc}{$H+}
  4.  
  5. uses
  6.   {$IFDEF UNIX}{$IFDEF UseCThreads}
  7.   cthreads,
  8.   {$ENDIF}{$ENDIF}
  9.   Interfaces, // this includes the LCL widgetset  < === note the inclusion of this unit
  10.   Forms, unit1
  11.   { you can add units after this };  

It looks as if for some reason the .lpr of your project omits the Interfaces unit.
You can click the "Add unit interfaces" button in the dialog you saw, or add it manually to correct the error.

Lazarus 1.6.0 gives the same warning in that situation. I don't know how the update can affect it.
Maybe there are mixed .ppu and .o files from the old revision. Just rebuild Lazarus and its packages clean. Usually it solves all problems.

Installed version 1.6.2 in the same directory as version 1.6 without uninstalling version 1.6

Did a rebuild of Lazarus - no errors.

Everything works fine! Thank you!

The Lazarus team is glad to announce the release of Lazarus 1.6.2. This is a bugfix release.

This release was built with FPC 3.0.0.
The previous release Lazarus 1.6.0 was built with FPC 3.0.0 too.

Here is the list of changes for Lazarus and Free Pascal:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.6.0_release_notes
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/User_Changes_3.0.0


Sorry if I'm being a complete fool but if this is 1.6.2, why are the release notes for 1.6.0 ?
Also if 1.6.0 and 1.6.2 are both built with FPC3.0.0, how is it this is shown to have changes ?

There aren't any. Perhaps you could better read it as "Available features and changes that have been introduced with FPC 3.0.0".

But, that is only relevant if you were coming from a lazarus version that didn't had FPC 3.0 as compiler. Same goes for Lazarus, even though there is a page which list the changes for 1.6.2

1.6.2 is a bug fix release. So there are no new features. Hence no release notes.
There is a list of the bugs that were fixed: http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.6_fixes_branch

The changes are both for the last major release.
So actually what changed in Lazarus 1.6

Thinking about, this may be a bit misleading.

This is for anyone coming from an earlier 1.4.x release.
Every 1.6.x shares the release notes with 1.6

-------------------------
New features are in "trunk" (svn).
This will at some point (not known yet) be released as 1.8.
Some of the feature are already on the wiki. http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.8.0_release_notes
But there may be new features in trunk that have not been added. So the list in under construction.
