FPC Version doesn't match?

(1/2) > >>

BrainChemistry:
This news says: "A new binary release of Lazarus for Win32 is now available. You can find the file on the download section of sourceforge

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=89339

This release includes FPC 1.9.3 and the Lazarus source as of 3 days ago."

So I downloaded and installed the binary. But the compiler included is version 1.0.10.

Did I anything wrong or did I misunderstand anything? Thanks for help.

Vincent Snijders:
I just downloaded the binary and confirmed it has fpc 1.9.3.

lazarus\pp\bin\win32\ppc386.exe is version 1.9.3 of 2004/03/02.

Maybe you downloaded the old installer, the new one is lazarus-9.0.1b-20040306-win32_binary.exe, http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/lazarus/lazarus-9.0.1b-20040306-win32_binary.exe?download

BrainChemistry:
The file I downloaded is named "lazarus-9.0.1b-20040306-win32_binary.exe". So it seems to be the right one.

When I start IDE (fp.exe) and check the "about" item at category "help" there the program says "Compiler version 1.0.10". Isn't it the same one?

neli:
fp.exe is the text console IDE which only works with fpc 1.0.10 AFAIK. Lazarus, OTOH, does work with fpc 1.9.x.

BrainChemistry:
I see. Thanks.

Well, so how do I check the version of the compiler correctly? Where do I have to look for it? This question seems to be stupid but I often searched many files for hints on this in freepascal directory without any success.
