== Why should everybody (including you) test the release candidate? ==

In the past weeks the Lazarus team has stabilized the 2.2 fixes branch.
The resulting 2.2RC1 is now stable enough to be used by any one for test purposes.

However many of the fixes and new features that where committed since the release of 2.0 required changes to the code of existing features too. While we have tested those ourselves, there may still be problems that only occur with very specific configurations or one project in a million.

Yes, it may be that you are the only person with a project, that will not work in the new IDE. So if you do not test, we can not fix it.

Please do not wait for the final release, in order to test. It may be too late. Once the release is out we will have to be more selective about which fixes can be merged for further 2.2.x releases. So it may be, that we can not merge the fix you require. And then you will miss out on all the new features.

== How to test ==

Download and install the 2.2 RC1.
- On Windows you can install as a 2ndary install, that will not affect your current install:
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Multiple_Lazarus#Installation_of_multiple_Lazarus
- On other platforms, if you install to a new location you need to use
--primary-config-path

In either case you should make backups. (including your primary config)

Open your project in the current Lazarus (2.0.x), and use "Publish Project" from the project menu. This creates a clean copy of your project.

You can then open that copy in the RC1. Please test:
- If you can edit forms in the designer
  - rename components / change properties in Object inspector / Add new events
  - Add components to form / Move components on form
  - Frames, if you use them
- If you can navigate the source code (e.g. jump to implementation)
- Auto completion in source code
- Compile, debug and run
- Anything else you use in your daily work

I installed it as a secondary install on Windows 10.
When first started it complained something about not finding FPC sources.

When I try to add button to a form I get error:

if I may ask, now that there is a release candidate, what's the typical amount of time elapsed between a release candidate and the actual release ?

Almost forgot, can Lazarus 2.2.0 use FPC v3.0.4 to compile programs ?

Thank you and thank you for all the hard work the team has put and is putting into Lazarus.

marcov:
A default config dir (e.g. $lazarusdir/config) for "other install" would be nice.

The lazarus configuration dialogue also got confused because of a global fpc 3.2.2 install. It selected that, rather than the lazarus\fpc embedded fpc dir for the compiler.

--- End quote ---

It found your compiler under
Real Default CompilerFilename=C:\FPC\3.2.0\bin\i386-win32\fpc.exe

But that is a diff version, so the sources are not what they should be:
Real FPC source directory=C:\lazarus_220rc1\fpc\3.2.0\source\

Note the "3.2.0" from the incorrect compiler.
Sources are in 3.2.2.

The question is why it preferred your older fpc.

It is normal that on first start, the config dir is empty
(assuming C:\lazarus_220rc1 was empty)
So there is on compiler patch given.
But it should have first looked into the default path in your install...

Please report that as a bug.
