******************************************************************************

Free Pascal 3.2.2 is a minor release of the 3.2.x fixes branch. As such, it

updates for included packages. In this case a new target was also backported

how to cope with these changes.

The main highlights of this version:

Platforms:
  • New platform: aarch64-darwin
  • A new 32/64-bit combined installer for Windows.
Utilities:
  • fpcres provides support for compiling resources from *.rc files
Packages:
  • fcl-db extended with support for MySQL 8.0
  • fcl-passrc updates
  • pas2js updates
  • fpdoc updates
     
  • fcl-base includes new support for logging to StdOut and StdErr
  • rtl-extra includes improvements for Sockets

There seems to be quite a lot of builds missing, compared to 3.2.0 (most notably, for me, go32v2); will they be added later or will they be DIY? :-\

Minor target builds depend on time etc of the maintainer.

This might be the last release for FreeBSD, since the last supported (non LLVM) version goes out of support in September.

Ah!, OK, I'll keep on 3.2.0 for the moment and if I need something from 3.2.2 I'll BMO, if it's not yet released. Thanks!

Though I must mention that considering the go32v2 target a "minor" one is a little harsh, IMHO. ::)

The main targets are Windows, Linux and macOS. Everything else is considered minor compared to them.

I understand that. I just think that at least GO32v2 might also be a "main" target, even if just for historical reasons, never mind that without it it's somewhat difficult to keep "updated" there.

Of course, that's just an opinion, and I understand perfectly that we are at the "mercy" of the official maintainer, whether he has the time and inclination to do it.

And of course, others will have their pet systems that they would want to consider "major targets" ;)

Hi all,

sourceforge seems to have an empty dir where the sources should be.  Do they come later?

Ah, no, that is an oversight. When I uploaded releases to SF, I was thinking of repackaging sources with some script fixes, but ultimately decided against it. I'll see if I can do it somewhen today.

Must be an oversight*, since they exists in the primary ftp site. Or if you don't like ftp, you can always use svn to check out the release tag. ;)

It still has the issues I posted on the rc thread: :(

This could also be merged: https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=37980

--


Also these are bad:  https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=38129  https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=35651

These programs give all kinds of errors (access violation, division by zero):  https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=37468  https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=37926

Deemed as too invasive by MvC.

Got no response on the core list when I asked whether it should be merged.

https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=35651

No specific revision known that fixed this, thus no merge possible.

These programs give all kinds of errors (access violation, division by zero):  https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=37468

Seems that I missed that Florian fixed it again with a separate revision.

  https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=37926

No final fix yet, thus nothing to merge.

As I am glad FreePascal 3.2.2 has been finally released, yesterday I downloaded the 32-bit Windows installer for me to try out this new version of FreePascal. However, there is a very concerning issue about it.
My antivirus (Avast Free Antivirus) detected malware in fpc-3.2.2.i386-win32.exe installer. The file in question was downloaded from Sourceforge yesterday, May 31, 2021. Attached is a screenshot of the antivirus program scanning result.
Today, June 1, 2021 I downloaded the installer again, hoping either the developers learned about this issue and the malware was removed or perhaps my antivirus, being updated, would not detect the aforementioned malware anymore and it was just a false positive. But, today the malware was detected as well. Attached is also a screenshot of today's Avast Antivirus scanning result. 
Is there actual malware in fpc-3.2.2.i386-win32.exe installer or my antivirus detected a false positive? If the former is true, how did the fpc-3.2.2.i386-win32.exe installer get infected?
I hope this issue will be addressed as soon as possible. Thanks in advance.
