I don't want that book for free.
Buy it. Supports his family a little.
Pawel died a couple of months ago. Way too young....

inline variables like in D10.3 are a bit like Brexit: if you are given the wrong information it sounds like a good idea. Every kid loves candy, but it makes you fat and your teeth will disappear.

From the description it is mostly firemonkey? Is it relevant for Lazarus?

It has a distinct Delphi flavor. That's correct. But it is beyond firemonkey.
inline variables like in D10.3 are a bit like Brexit: if you are given the wrong information it sounds like a good idea. Every kid loves candy, but it makes you fat and your teeth will disappear.
