Hello to all

I would like to ask if there is any solution to the HiDPI problem (like in a MacBook Pro Retina) and Lazarus.

Thank you.

Yes there is but you have to switch to Lazarus trunk or wait for Lazarus 1.8(it's just around the corner).

Hey guys!

First of all, since this is my first post here, of course a big thanks and thumbs up for this brilliant project! I switched over to it from Borland Delphi after I refused to pay their horrendous prices for updates any longer, and do not regret it! ;-)

I just went to the download page of Lazarus 1.6.4 and compared the SHA256 checksums of the file I downloaded with the official list. It seems there's been some mixup?

For example, the SHA256 for the actual file "lazarus-1.6.4-fpc-3.0.2-win64.exe" differs from the one in the list, but matches the one for "lazarus-1.6.4-fpc-3.0.2-cross-i386-win32-win64.exe".

The other checksums (MD5, SHA1) are correct though.

Just thought I'd mention that, to avoid confusion and possible questions about manipulated downloads. :)

Cheers,
Frank

Hi Lazarus team,
there must be a huge difference between 1.6.0 and 1.6.4.
My application (merchandise planning and control system) based on Firebird 3.0 compiles and works fine in 1.4.4 and 1.6.0.
The compilation in 1.6.4 is Ok but the program starts with 'field not found errors' what is nonsens and show windows without any data.
Any ideas ?

Probably because 1.6.4 comes with fpc 3.0

Actually it comes with FPC 3.0.2 which indeed had many changes compared to FPC 3.0.

I fixed it in r54833 (trunk). It will be backported to 1.8, too.
The reason was a wrong ShortDateFormat: 'd/M/yyyy' instead of 'd/m/yyyy'. Has it ever worked? What changed? Strange.

Not decided yet. During the summer depending on how many RCs are needed.
I recommend the fixes_1_8 branch already now for people who have problems with earlier versions.

Okay, this gives me some time ..  :)

The step from 1.4 to 1.6 was a large one for me because of the new UTF-8 mode.
Will there be big changes from 1.6 to 1.8, compared to this ?

The Unicode change with FPC 3 broke some old code which is unusual.
The changes are now smaller. The biggest change affecting LCL and user apps may be the high DPI support by Ondrej. It is backwards compatible. Earlier there was no support for high DPI.
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.
