FPC 2.6.4 released!

(1/5) > >>

marcov:

Finally, FPC 2.6.4 has landed. FPC 2.6.4 is an update to 2.6.2 and 2.6.0 that
contains most library progress over the 2.6.2. It will probably conclude the
2.6.x branch.

Building is still in progress and some formats (deb) and targets might
not be available yet.

Changes that may break backwards compatibility are documented at:
http://wiki.freepascal.org/User_Changes_2.6.4

Due to issues with mirroring, please use sourceforge as much as possible,

http://sourceforge.net/projects/freepascal/files/

or the main (Hungarian) FTP server at

ftp://www.hu.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/dist/2.6.4/

We hope the freepascal.stack.nl mirror will come into sync again in the coming
days.

Enjoy!

Be careful, FPC 2.6.4 is incompatible with Lazarus 1.2, at least at present and on Mac OS X. See http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,23885.0.html for details.

Please do not make such statements with a very secure proof.

BigChimp:
Agreed. Going by the linked thread, I strongly suspect jwdietrich did not follow the steps required in
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Installing_Lazarus
