Okay... I'll stop with all this talking! Sorry for talking too much! :P See ya!  ;)
You can talk as much as you want in a proper forum thread dedicated for the topic. Why people have an obsession to hijack this thread about Lazarus bug fix release 2.0.10? Martin apparently deleted the earlier hijacked contents. Is there a way to move all hijacked content to a new thread so that also the original author information remains?

There is, because Martin had done exactly this with the previous off topic posts (and here I was not responding to the Win 3.11 posts despite wanting to, because I didn't want to extend the off topic part... ::) )

Hijacking? lol  :D

Okay, Mr. JuhaManninen, I won't talk about this here anymore. I'm creating a new forum topic about my 'request" next week, a certain Lazarus for Win 3.x somewhere in the future. Hardly I'll get it, I just know how the things are.

Anyway, sorry for any inconvenience caused by my posts here. You can delete them if you like but you would have to delete their replies too. Including this post!

It was nice to talk about that off-topic here and this was my last post in this topic. My best regards for all!  ;)
A RECKLESS SLACKER! ;-)

I have just confirmed that the Lazarus IDE + Lazarus provided FPC installation issue with pkg files (see https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,50298.msg367411.html#msg367411 for Installer Dialog), also prevents installation of Lazarus + FPC on El Capitan 10.11.6, Yosemite 10.10.5 and Mavericks 10.9.5 in addition to Mountain Lion 10.8.5.

[updated to add El Capitan.]

Dragging this back on topic for a moment... the Lazarus 2.0.8 macOS pkg files:

* fpc-3.0.4-macos-x86_64-laz.pkg
* LazarusIDE-2.0.8-macos-x86_64.pkg
* fpc-src-3.0.4-laz.pkg

do not work on Mountain Lion (10.8.5) giving the somewhat spurious error detailed in the attached Installer dialog.

Can this be bug fixed for 2.0.10?

For 10.4 to 10.14 you can use the i386 files.
For 10.12 or higher you can use the x86-64 files.

I have updated the readme txt on sourceforge.

The updated sourceforge README does not seem to contain any of this additional information?

Quote
You need to download and install all three packages fpc, fpc-src and lazarus.

fpc - the Compiler, some command line tools, base units and non visual components like database access
fpcsrc - the sources of fpc and its packages, needed for code browsing
lazarus - the IDE, visual components and help files

Thankyou to the team for the effort.


Only one question and is if will be a future release for Haiku 32  & 64 bits.

I have tried to compile with freepascal 3.2.0 and latest Lazarus snapshot but ever finalized with error.

make clean all LCL_PLATFORM=qt
make clean all LCL_PLATFORM=qt5

Best Regards.

Like any open issue, it should get fixed. I do not know why this particular issue is not getting picked up.

However this is not part of this release preparation. The issue isn't yet solved, so it can not be merged.

For anything that is not about this 2.0.10, a new thread can and should be opened.


Also building of 2.0.10 has already begun. So no more changes can be made for 2.0.10

I'm working on a project that will need to compile on WIN-7 (WIN-10), Linux and specifically the Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone Black. 

Using the:
LazSerial v0.3
Serial Port Component for Lazarus
by Jurassic Pork  03/2013 04/2020

It requires access to FTDI USB serial ports for accessing a common CAN bus dongle (CANUSB from Lawicel).  I have this functioning on the PC but the Linux side for serial ports (as stated in the LazSerial docs) is not yet complete.   

The problems Lazarus on the Beagle Bone and the Pi are not the same revision and I've had programs that work on the Pi but have features that don't on the Beagle.  Is there a plan to bring some of these more common small ARM based boards up to the same level as the PC/MAC/Linux versions?

The concept of write once compiler anywhere only works if the systems are the same revisions.

@jcdammeyer, please do not hijack this thread about a Lazarus bug fix release 2.0.10.
Instead create a new thread in a proper section, for example :
 Forum »Programming »Networking and Web Programming

I don't understand why so many people want to hijack exactly this thread.

Well this post is actually "release" (as in distribution) related. It can even be interpreted (I do not know the posters intend) to add rpi to our releases.

Currently official released versions (which is what the thread is about) exist only for the platform for which we provide on sourceforge.

Any platform not represented on our sourceforge, can be attempted to be installed from source.


"Distributions" available via Linux repositories, or other channels, are not made by the Lazarus team.
And we have no influence on them. In most cases we do not even know the people who put those repositories together.


We do not currently have any ready release builds for none Intel. (i.e. arm on rpi).
I do not know if anyone is going to volunteer to build them. (including testing, and maintaining fixes for the new platform).


So anyway, as I said this thread is meant for the existing release process, and existing targets.

So for a new target, as Juha said, please open a new thread / or consult the mail list (different audience, widening the reach for potential contributors).

1) Check Tools > Options => is the path to the compiler up to date (i.e. 3.2.0) ?

2) Do a clean build (Tools > Config build Lazarus)

A rebuild, should also bring your components back.
They are still installed (as in: on the list of installed packages). But they are not compiled in.

Think there has maybe been a problem with the installation.
Downloaded again, and installed.
First time, It didn't ask to uninstall - second time it found a 2.0.8 version, tho it should have been overwritten by the 2.0.10.
Anyhow - playing now as expected.

And the installed versus "compiled in"...
My components are there - quite right - and marked for "installation".
But they are not easily compiled in - button(s) to do so are disabled...
(Installed something I don't need, to get it to install all my components in one go - and then have to uninstall the not needed.)

You're saying I should/could have rebuild IDE instead, and that would bring back the components I had in former version?
