FPC 3.0.4 not available for download
« on: October 02, 2021, 09:37:03 pm »
As the IDE within v3.2.0 and v3.2.2 crashes almost 100 % of the time at my laptop I want to go back to the last stable version I used before, v3.0.4.
At the end of the page 'https://www.freepascal.org/download.html' there's a link mentioned to get older versions, but it leads to an unsupported page. Can the latter URL be corrected?

I agree there's a problem, and in the interim you might find https://sourceforge.net/projects/freepascal/files/ useful... I can't be more specific since you've not told us what OS etc. you're interested in.

Thanks MarkMLI and trev for pointing me to the right locations (I'm using Windows 10 B.T.W).

@MarkMLI, you indicated there's a problem: are you referring to the incorrect content of the link I mentioned, or to a known problem with v3.2.0 and v3.2.2?

The link. There were some /very/ early compiler versions which were withdrawn, but as far as I know everything else is available for download and is also buildable from source (although which compiler binary version can build which compiler source version might need careful consideration).

fpcupdeluxe is able to build older versions from FPC and Lazarus..
I happen to need it to debug KOL which currently does not compile for trunk and 3.2.

The average programmer productivity is 4-5 hours per day. Peak performance 72 hours for short bursts. MTBF is 1 second or less.

Glad to be able to help in some small way... note that you'll need to edit the subject line in the first message rather than the final one :-)
