Title: Lazarus 1.0 release available for download
Post by: mattias on August 29, 2012, 08:00:05 pm
The Lazarus team is glad to announce the release of:
 
            Lazarus 1.0
 
At this important stage the current team would like to thank all the past and current people who were involved in getting us here.
* Thanks also go to the FPC team for providing the compiler that makes it all possible.
* Special thanks go to the founders of the project who started Lazarus more than a decade ago in 1999: Cliff Baeseman, Shane Miller and Michael A. Hess.
* A history of developers involved can be found at http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/History. And a list of the many contributors comes with the distribution. 

The release is available for download at the SourceForge download page:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/

Choose your CPU, OS, distro and then the "Lazarus 1.0" directory.

Minimum requirements:
Windows:       98, 2k, XP, Vista, 7, 32 or 64bit
FreeBSD/Linux: gtk 2.8 or qt4.5, 32 or 64bit
Mac OS X:      10.4, LCL only 32bit, non LCL apps can be 64bit

This release has been built with fpc 2.6.0 (the former release 0.9.30.4 was built with that too).

The svn tag is
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/tags/lazarus_1_0

The list of changes:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.0_release_notes

For people who are blocked by SF, the Lazarus releases from sourceforge are mirrored at:
ftp://freepascal.dfmk.hu/pub/lazarus/releases/
and later at (after some time for synchronization)

Amazing.

Still the only one IDE/RAD which is truly cross-platform, it builds native code and nobody need to install any additional framework or run any runtime environment.

Great job. Thanks.

Definitely some beer flowing here to celebrate. This is a significant day,  finally a 1.0 moment, and there is a genuine feel-good factor in being involved with such an inclusive and multi-cultural group as the 'Lazarus community'. :)
Congratulations to the hard-working team!

Congratulations!

Have been following Lazarus & FPC for many years, and I mist admit: I'm really impressed even after all this time!

Went right ahead and updated to 1.0 and even installed for the first time on a Mac.

And as someone using Pascal for his daily work for 20 years now, I think I'm at the point where I can say that Lazarus is the best Pascal IDE (and FPC the best compiler) available!

This is awesome ! Great news !
There must be some kind of quantum connection here.
Yesterday my Thunderbird was screaming for an update which i did today and found out that it has a built-in IRC client so i connected to the IRC (after many years of absence from the Lazarus/FPC community) to find out that Lazarus has finally reached 1.0 !
I almost gave up on Object Pascal, thinking about jumping ship to Node.js/HTML5/WebGL and that kind of stuff, because i work as a Delphi dev for many years now and every company (even the one i work for) seems to migrate towards .NET, AIR, Java or ObjC these days for desktop/mobile programming.

I must resurrect  O:-) my old Lazarus projects and check out this great release.

Over 10 years to go from inception to v1.0....that's the difference between a proper product and one that is made for money. The refinement of Lazarus to this level is testiment to the hard work of all the developers and bug fixers and bug contributors.

Lazarus Rocks.
People submit this news to every tech news site you know, spread the word
about Lazarus and how great it is.

Barring a few third party delphi only components, I can use Lazarus for almost all my development needs now.

Once component I would love to see officially ported to Lazarus is /http://www.trichview.com/ (http://www.trichview.com/), there is a very old port of just the viewer component, but it would be so nice to have the Trichviewedit component as well for Lazarus.

Snorkel, I'm on the same boat as you.  However, check out my demo of RichChat.  It's the best implementation I've found yet for RichView (as opposed to RichEdit), apart from the memory issue I'm working on.  See:

http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,18021.0.html (http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,18021.0.html)

A demo with code is included.

It’s very rare to perform an update without any issues.
This is my second update of Lazarus.
Windows XP service pack 3
Updated from Lazarus 0.9.30.4 to Lazarus 1.0
Recompiled Lazarus 1.0 to add the service pk
Recompiled two large projects no problems.
This really is an excellent product.

@Jerry: he probably meant he installed a package instead of adding a service pack...
See IDE, Package Menu,Install/Uninstall packages...:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/IDE_Window:_Installed_Packages (http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/IDE_Window:_Installed_Packages)
This allows you to add extra functionality to Lazarus.

There is no service pack for Lazarus.

Object Pascal tutorial is everywhere on the net though, which is I guess why we only need to provide differences with existing one instead of full blown tutorials. Have you tried some of Lazarus e-books? Like the one written by Motaz?

actually i learn a lot from delphibasics website and this forum but its just sad their is not much free documentation... their is also SchoolFreewares youtube video tutorials that recently been updated but it will be tons better to have a PDF formatted ebook of those free resources

i learned a lot on the forums by asking stuffs and people like you Leledumbo are always there to answer them

but despite that im still am noob to programming and this is the only program that i completed with Lazarus a simple alternative HandbrakeGUI - http://code.google.com/p/cyko/

i can imagine the so much needed time by total newbies to Lazarus on spending too much time searching for lazarus free pascal programming codes that they want to learn to make their prospect project/s... so to me a simple and free pdf ebook that has the basics like simple database creation/manipulation will make learning of Lazarus faster

I have to agree with you.
There is much documentation but not much entry level stuff that 'gets you going' (or at least it's difficult to assess for someone new what is the most relevant).
And all documentation is not very coherent (you could buy the book :D).
You can help by telling what you have missed and thought what was/is the most difficult to understand.
Then someone could write a page or pages for the wiki about it.

Well, just released or otherwise, there are no "service packs" for Lazarus, this is not made by Micro$oft  ;D

Lazarus is free and open source software, so there is no need for any packs or updates, you can always download the whole application, binaries and source...

i remember that you are active on the forums answering questions by noobs like me thanks eny and this tutorial of yours is cool for beginners - http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Howdy_World_(Hello_World_on_steroids) (http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Howdy_World_(Hello_World_on_steroids))

as a noob i think a for dummies free tutorial of database application programming will be a great help like using SQLite and PostgreSQL

eny's Hellow World on Steroids is a good example of a for dummies tutorial

and ye i agree that making a dedicated area for those free ebooks will be a big help too just for easy access since noobs like me find it very time-consuming (i almost give up) to search for free tutorials

What about http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/SQLdb_Tutorial1 (http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/SQLdb_Tutorial1)?

And there's much more tutorials. Hint: look for the tutorial category page - in fact click on the Tutorial text in Category:Tutorial at the bottom of a Tutorial, search for the text "tutorial" in wiki search.

You could also help by starting your own or improving existing wiki pages. Every little bit helps.

@Dibo, perhaps this:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Roadmap (http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Roadmap)
helps...
I can imagine things like docking may now be looked at..

So we have 1.0.

What we can expect in future version? What is the major target now?

Congratulations and thanks to the development team for this milestone! A serious alternative to Delphi, and it has evolved faster than Delphi since it was abandoned by Borland (I think current versions of Delphi have added minor changes compared to Lazarus).

Thanks for your job, but french enterprises do not know lazarus or do not use linux. I have sent 3 articles to "Programmez" and some on http://www.developpez.net.

Gratitude to all people who developed lazarus since the begining of the project until now.
Congratulations to all lazarus users.
Thanks to the developers of Lazarus today we have an excelent piece of sotware.
We have a wonderful RAD tool with wonderful IDE which produce stable binary on Linux, Windows, CE, Mac, Android.
We have a wonderful tool that provides us the posibility to make our applications standalone, multiplatform and non-dependable on any runtime-environment or any external libraries.
As simple as compile, deploy and run.
For free.

You have done a really good job.
Lazarus, to become a competitor of DELPHI, he needs components for Firebird on a par with IBX.
The component MDO Mercury (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mdo/) has all the features but it still requires some adjustments from the community, it might be easy for you to integrate it in the native components and solve the small problems remained.
Finally LazReport requires an implementation robust enough to become a real tool for report.
I hope you consider my proposed prendee.
Sorry for my bad English.

Thanks again for the good work

You said IBX for Lazarus?, Look here:

For me, a line with a great future for Lazarus, is working in the mobile environment. Android and iOS grow more than any other system!

Excellent! A cause for celebration.

I installed and compiled one of my projects on both Mac OS 10.6.8 and Windows XP with no problems.

Thanks for the hard work!

I stopped programming 12 years ago and was one of the first people to use Delphi
In my library is Delphi Unleashed ,Mastering Delphi, Delphi How to, Delphi development fro Windows 95
(I Know That Was a long Time Age) Delphi Database Development and Delphi Developers Guide.
 
A few months ago decided to get another computer and download a free copy for Delphi

To download a free copy of Delphi is a rear as hens teeth what I Did find was Lazarus
when I first saw Lazarus I thought I was actually using Delphi all over again

IT IS A WORK OF ART AND THE CLOSET  SOFTWARE TO DELPHI I HAVE SEEN
WHAT A GREAT APPLICATION LAZARUS RULES SO DOES PASCAL
 CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU TO THE TEAM THAT DEVELOPED IT

My book Start programming using Object Pascal downloads has been increased after the release of Lazarus version 1.
It reaches 1400 downloads last month, while it was 990 downloads in Aug

First of all Thank you Lazarus team for the hard work.

Secondly I do have a small request:
Can someone repackage the RPMs and change the dependencies on FPC from FPC = 2.6.0 to FPC >= 2.6.0
Reason: Fedora 17 comes with FPC 2.6.0-2 and it constantly tries to update this package failing with lazarus as a dependent package that requires 2.6.0.

Thank you.

I just got through creating a simple SQLite DB app with Lazarus as an exercise.  There were some hiccups here and there, but to my memory the number and kind were comparable to Delphi 1.0. (except for the help system, which needs some work [understandable])    Overall, especially considering the challenge of such an undertaking by volunteers, great job.  Very fun to use.

Well done Lazarus team.  I hope to show my appreciation by contributing  in some meaningful fashion in the near future.

Cliff here  :o, just noticed the team hit the 1.0 release.  I am happy to be one of the guys that got the project started along with Mike and Shane. However the real heros are all of the people that came and went plugging away at the project through all of these years.  Shouts out to everyone!

I agree with your words
Project rate for code contributions is insane and is growing  :o
http://www.ohloh.net/p/lazarus


And download rate is growing on sf.net

I don't know other sources for stats

Maybe popcon from debian
