Open the lfm, and look at "Left"...
At least for me this is displayed way outside the visible desktop area.

Edit left to something reasonable, and it works.

Which url have you looked at?

The files are on sourceforge.

Maybe the mirrors need some time to catch up.

EDIT
Oh, I see the wiki... fixed

Really great work !  :) I've already downloaded it, and I'm making it a portable version.

After updating to Lazarus 1.8 (was using 1.6.4 ) I have noticed strange behavior in source editor.

When ever i try to write something in source editor it inputs two characters on one key press.
For example if i press "k" on my keyboard it inputs "kk" and so on...
I have been unable to find the cause of the issue.

I am using Linux Mint mate 18.3 64 bit

Is there a page with known bugs per Lazarus/FPC version?

In this version Lazarus 1.8 the FormatFloat() error is still present.
See: http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,39144.msg267614.html

With such a bug Lazarus 1.8 doesn't seem ready for production use and a (wiki-)page to list all known problems could help people decide if switching to that version is wise.

Edit: Or maybe this should be a section in the release notes ("Known bugs" or "Known issues") which can be changed as they are found.
