Links to "developer blog" and "follow us on twitter"
« on: May 09, 2020, 10:20:07 am »
Hi,

The Developer Blog doesn't seem to be updated since 2015.
The Follow us on Twitter has as lates announcement that we released 2.0.6.

Is it really that usefull to have these 2 links here, especially the first one?
IMO it doesn't give a good impression for those (especially newbies) who click on them.

Indeed - it only adds to the impression that FPC + Lazarus are "dead".

Lazarus 2.1 r65070 FPC 3.3.1 r49223 macOS 11.2.3 aarch64 Xcode 12.4

Unless they can/will be maintained it is better to remove them altogether.

Can anyone defend these links? If they're not gaping to be updated after so many years, can they be removed?

Devel blog was already disabled, I've disabled the twitter too.
Maybe we'll enable twitter again if we start to tweet new releases again

Marc, while you're at it, maybe you could add a link to the page (How to use the) Forum under "Useful Wiki Links".

Mainly so that new users learn how to use "code" tags ;)
Turbo Pascal 3 CP/M - Amstrad PCW 8256 (512 KB !!!) :P
Lazarus/FPC 2.0.8/3.0.4 & 2.0.12/3.2.0 - 32/64 bits on:
