Improving FPC for ARM (including Apple Silicon)
« on: September 15, 2020, 07:10:51 pm »
I notice that J Gareth Moreton has a new Patreon page https://www.patreon.com/curiouskit/posts
 He has been doing a lot of work optimizing FreePascal. He has had a great track record with x86-64, and has now started work on ARM optimizations. I encourage FreePascal and Lazarus developers who are interested in the ARM architecture to join me in supporting him. It is great that both Lazarus and FPC now support Apple Silicon (and several other ARM CPUs), but I suspect that focused work on optimization will unlock the power of these CPUs.
