                              What's New in 3.0.2

Free Pascal 3.0.2 is a point release of the 3.0.x fixes branch.

Please also see for a list
of changes that may affect the behaviour of previously working code, and
how to cope with these changes.

Some highlights are:


* TRect, TPoint and similar types are now type compatible between
    Types and Windows unit, and are now advanced records.

* googleapi and fcl-pdf packages.
* fcl-db and web packages synchronized
* unicode tables updated.
See for the list of reported
bugs which have been fixed in this release.

Excellent! Is there a version for PPC-based Macs underway?

Thanks to fpc team :)

Thanks. Very good release. I particularly like the fact that the standard helpers for types made it into the RTL, as well as many db improvements.
Both are not in the release notes (yet) but are really significant. Again. great Job and KUDOS

I can't remember a release with so many back-ports from trunk?

Well, this dot release took well over a year which is also exceptional.
Anyway, I am happy it now finally happened. Thanks!
This started to look like a dead project for casual users who only check new releases. Now it is back alive for them, too. :)
