Something being fixed based on a bug report for an RC does not automatically mean that it will be part of the final release.

If it is a regression from previous release (as said in bug report), would you merge to fixes branch?

For compiler changes it's usually best if the one who did it (in this case Florian) does it or triggers Marco to do it as mainly the original developer knows the implications of the merge. Marco does not merge compiler changes by himself.

Hi,

Thanks for the update !

Strangely, my antivirus tells me that fpc.exe contains a virus. This is the only one file that is rejected by antivirus (GData).

As one of GData engine uses BitDefender database, is there anyone who have this error too ?

What can be done ?

Thanks !

What can be done ?

First make sure (by checking the checksum) that your download is correct and, if so, tell your antivirus to ignore this "detection".

Antiviruses frequently tag assemblers, compilers, debuggers, etc. for, among others, the simple reason that they are used to "modify" executables, which is also a virus "signature". If you're sure you have a clean copy you can ignore it and tell the antivirus to ignore it too. They already ignore the most common tools (say, GCC, Visual C, etc.) but the less common ones (like FPC) still give problems.

Hi

I just downloaded, 7/20/2020, the Free Pascal 3.2.0 from the Source Forge mirror site, and during the install Bitdefender stopped it and identified a trojan "Gen:Trojan.Heur.TP.gyW@bagP5ah." .  I do not know if this is a false positive or a real threat.  But I thought I would share the information.

Thank you

Hi!

The false positive alarm of Bitdefender increases in the last year.

The last false positive alarm was about YajHFC (Yet another Java HylaFAX client) which runs on our Windows clients since 7 years. Unchanged.

There were some more issue with false positive of Bitdefender.
Hard times for the AV companies.

Hi Winni

How does a person find out what the checksum of the original file is?  And what is an easy way for me to check the checksum of the downloaded file?  I am working on a Windows 10 o/s 64 bit.

Thank you

Jack

Please report it to BitDefender. They have necessary means to identify if it is a false positive or not.
