FreeSparta project is dead - Generics.Collections is live
« on: December 23, 2014, 11:03:02 pm »
I've Decided to close the "FreeSparta". Thanks you all for your interest. There are several reasons.

1. The project had only 1 developer (yeah it's me).
2. New 2015 EU VAT rules on the sale of e-services
3. I am a terrible marketer. I'm just a programmer.
4. Lack of sufficient income.

When I look for new jobs, it seems that there are no more jobs for Pascal/Delphi Programmers. Now in my new job I'm using Java EE and C# most of the time.

Thanks!

PS. now Generics.Collections library is Open Source :)

http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=27206

Important:

TFastHashMap from Generics.Collections is faster than any other generic container for fpc :) (is based on "De-amortized Cuckoo Hashing"

http://arxiv.org/abs/0903.0391). For big data count is even faster than TFPStringHashTable.

Suggestion:

1. someone can extend generics.memoryexpanders for TCustomList/TList (for control memory growth by constraints)
2. nice to have for dictionary hashing: http://blog.synopse.info/post/2014/05/25/New-crc32c%28%29-function-using-optimized-asm-and-SSE-4.2-instruction

Library (with patch) is compatible with Rev 27327. To run this library in new version of compiler we need to fix:

REGRESSION: 26483 and 26481

and will be nice to fix

CRITICAL: 24848(!!!), 24872(!), 25607(!), 26030, 25917, 25918, 25620, 24283, 24254, 24287 (Related to? 24872)
IMPORTANT: 23862(!), 24097, 24285, 24286 (Similar to? 24285), 24098, 24609 (RTL inconsistency), 24534,
             25606, 25614, 26177, 26195
OTHER: 26484, 24073, 24463, 25593, 25596, 25597, 25602, 26181 (or MYBAD?)
CLOSED BUT IMO STILL TO FIX: 25601(!), 25594
