When do docs on source forge get updated?
« on: August 26, 2020, 08:37:21 pm »
WHat determines when the documentation host on source forge (https://lazarus-ccr.sourceforge.io/docs/) gets updated? It doesn't appear to be new releases.

The FPC and RTL items are from 2017, and do not appear to be FPC 3.2.0.

LCL and LazUtils do not use date stamps in the footer, so it's difficult to tell their origin. But again, it doesn't seem to be a new release. These are problematic since they differ substantially from the CHM versions.

Just curious.
Lazarus 2.1 (SVN) / FPC 3.0.4 / FPC 3.2.0 / x86-win64 / Windows 8.1

Probably a wrong link, because the FPC 3.2.0 sources are from 2020. Note I do not follow Lazarus docs (poor) but the FPC doc sources are current and excellent.

Also note you can build the most recent trunk doc sources yourself.

When you ask a question that is actually answered in the documentation, you are either lazy or a moron.

I had not noticed that they were 2 different sites. Good to know... but also another fly in the ointment.
But I agree, the FPC documentation is generally of much better quality.

The Source Forge site is the only online option for LCL and LazUtils. And if they seem to be poor and out-of-date, that would be because the they are not tracking changes that have to started to appear in the CHM versions.

Also note you can build the most recent trunk doc sources yourself.

Yes, I know. I do that from time to time for LCL and LazUtils to verify/track changes being submitted to SVN. You know... it compiles so it must be alright. :)

But that doesn't get the HTML files rebuilt or uploaded to Source Forge. Hence... my question.

Please file a bug with Lazarus-ccr in mantis (not on SF).
