Lazarus svn branch tag question
« on: March 05, 2017, 09:36:23 pm »
Hello,

I am not sure as to where to post my question. If this is not the right place, let me know and I post it to correct forum.

I read following release tags in the repository
Code: [Select]
lazarus_1_6/
lazarus_1_6_2/
lazarus_1_6_4/

I have two questions
1) if I use lazarus_1_6 tag to get sources from svn server, will it include patches from lazarus_1_6_4?
2) Is Lazarus version 1.6.4 compatible with fpc version 3.1.1?

Thanks & regards,
-Ertan

No, lazarus_1_6 equals to lazarus_1_6_0 (which doesn't exist).
2) Is Lazarus version 1.6.4 compatible with fpc version 3.1.1?
In general Lazarus is supported by latest FPC release (which is 3.0.2 now), in-development version is never supported but most of the time it may just work (or break, which even the compiler itself could).

Tags are snap shots of the repository at a certain point in time, so you need  to use a branch instead.

You probably want to use the fixes_1_6 branch.
