To make components palettes in outside libraries - .dll .so
In this case can to easy add/remove palette, less to recompile all Lazarus executable. And make possibly to add more palettes in 32bit lazarus. This to save in some .cfg file, which to manipulate by Package manager.
Thanks

In some previous version package ToDoListLaz.lpk was not installed by default. Please ensure that in new version averything will be OK.

I find the release cycle of Lazarus a bit optimistic. I'd rather see a significant slow down.

I know that this package was included in previous versions. But I never used it. It would be interesting to see whether other users did the same. It is not essential for the IDE, therefore I think it is a good idea to removed it from the list of the packages installed by default. The IDE is getting fatter from version to version...

I agree. I used to remove it because I never used it. ( I decorate my code with user defined notes, warnings and errors)
But keep it in the repository for fpcdeluxe.

I wanted to ask to make it possible to install chm-help via OPM. Or include this feature as an additional option in the standard installer for Windows.
Win7 Ultim x64/Deb 10 amd64 GTK3:
Lazarus x32 2.1(r.62009); FPC 3.3.1 (r.43150),
IBX by -Rik-; FB 3.0.4

Sorry for my bad English, I'm using translator ;)

It *is* included. I think it is the last page of the installer, the one with the many checkboxes... One of them says: "Install CHM help"

If you have a PC (Windowl) on which you never ever installed Lazarus, then IIRC it is pre-selected.

If you change it, the installer then should remember this for your next install. (again IIRC).
The installer stores this in the registry. Lazarus itself does not store stuff in the registry, but the installer does.
Not sure what (if anything) is stored for a 2ndary install.

You can find the inno build file in tools/install/win

If you chose to install the help, it will be in docs/chm
The chm viewer lhelp.exe should be in components\chmhelp\lhelp

You're right. I forgot about this option because I mainly use Lazarus trunk and compiler trunk

Thank you for reminding.

Does the community have plans to make it possible to install help files via OPM? The fact is that with the "manual" assembly of Lazarus, the help files have to be downloaded from third-party resources and manually added to the ../docs/chm folder.

I think OPM can only work with "packages", not with package-less files.

But I think what's more important is that the IDE can handle only the chm files provided. It is not possible to extend the IDE such that it reckognizes other CHM files coming with non-LCL packages. TAChart and fprspreadsheet are packages which are maintained by mayself have a chm file (or a chm file can be created), but there is no way to register these chm files for the IDE so that pressing F1 on the "TChart" identifier, for example, opens the related help page.

Martin, can you comment on this? Maybe I am missing something.

Big thanks to the developers! (Otherwise I use fixes 2.0 branch)

So, I know, (Sorokin) RegExpr is a part of the fpc, but present time slightly complicated to use it, as I wrote here the latest trunk version from the developer site works with UTF8 without any magic.
So the uregexpr solution in fpc 3.2.0 is unnecessary, and complicate to use it, because need utf8<->unicode conversion to use.

, the help files have to be downloaded from third-party resources

What third party resources? They are in Lazarus Sourceforge (here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/Lazarus%20Documentation/Lazarus%202.0.2/).
