I believe your code works with 1.8 as is. The IDE is improved, too. I dare to say it is safe to switch! Just try yourself.

Hi there Juha,

That sounds tempting. What changes have been made to the IDE for 1.8?

Thanks,

JD

At least there is the new menu designer and the online package manager by GetMem is included.
The package manager itself is fully functional but not fully integrated with the rest of Lazarus package system, so it is still work in progress.

There are plenty of smaller fixes. Uhhh, somebody should update this page:
 http://wiki.freepascal.org/New_IDE_features_since#v1.8

LCL has new widgetsets, QT5 and GTK3 (which is still under construction).

Everyone please test the fixes 1.8 branch and report bugs.
