Well, by the Islamic calendar we are still in the 1440s so there is still a "little" time for a 2019 release :D 8-)

It is not so much the date, but the associated holidays that do the trick.

Any news on FPC 3.2?

Some progress with the major blockers in the last weeks. No news about schedule.

Now it is already February

I hope fpc3.2 comes soon.

I spend today replacing arrays of strings with arrays of arrays in my project, and it became much faster, but now I notice, it does not compile with fpc 3.0 anymore :/

Can you post a small example?

It was kind of like this:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1.  
  2. program p;
  3. type TObjectArray = array of TObject;
  4. procedure testOld(a: array of string);
  5. begin
  6.   //... for s in a do s.split(',') ...
  7. end;
  8. procedure testNew(a: array of TObjectArray);
  9. begin
  10.   //...
  11. end;
  12. var x, y, a, b: tobject;
  13. begin
  14.   testOld(['x,y','a,b']);
  15.   testNew([[x,y],[a,b]])
  16. end.
  17. ~
  18.

Well, in trunk this compiles, note array initialization in mode delphi and mode objectfpc are different:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. program p;
  2. {$mode delphi}
  3. type TObjectArray = array of TObject;
  4. procedure testOld(a: array of string);
  5. begin
  6.   //... for s in a do s.split(',') ...
  7. end;
  8. procedure testNew(a: array of TObjectArray);
  9. begin
  10.   //...
  11. end;
  12. var x, y, a, b: tobject;
  13. begin
  14.   testOld(['x,y','a,b']);
  15.   testNew([[x,y],[a,b]])
  16. end.

Of course I assume your trunk is reasonably up-to-date...

You're relying on dynamic array constructors here with your testNew (the function take an open array of dynamic arrays). These are only supported in 3.2 and newer.

As a workaround you can use the Create constructor which is only available for named dynamic arrays (which your TObjectArray is):

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. testNew([TObjectArray.Create(x, y), TObjectArray.Create(a, b)]);

I know, that is why I wrote it in the new way.

But I cannot share the code, as long as most people still use 3.0.x

I did not know about that, but I rewrote it with a custom function

Any approximate ETA?

It is not a curiosity question, 3.0.4 does not support libssl1.1 in Linux.
I need to know ETA to figure out what to do now, to wait for FPC 3.2 or to switch to unreleased FPC SVN with risks that something there has untested bugs.

A rc1 will be released very shortly.   Final Release date is to be determined, but probably not that soon.

The difference between the unreleased FIXES_3_2 branch and real releases is mostly just packaging. I would simply use a FIXES3_2  snapshot if I were you.

Well, there is at least one patch in the bugtracker that IMO needs to go into 3.2 (it's an ugly regression).

It's a bit intransparent. The roadmap shows 100% of issues have been resolved since some time now. Why does it still take so much time for a the release. Sorry I'm a bit impatient   :P But IMO more frequent releases with less changes would be better for new features to get adopted. Also for newcomers it is probably a bit complicated to compile from trunk. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the work you all do! It's just my opinion.
