Looks like I'm missing something obvious (I'm new to FPC) but where how do I get support for those new features? The FPC 3.2.2 doesn't seem to have it and there's no download for a newer version.

If you mainly are interested in new features, install Lazarus and Freepascal using fpcupdeluxe and install the trunk version.
You can then install multiple versions of lazarus and fpc side by side.
Or install Codetyphon for experimental purposes. They are always based on trunk.

BTW, I tested this now months later and the bug with codetools is fixed, thanks to the team!

Peter, please look at this thread - https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,61479.msg462951.html#msg462951

Note that I posted a very long winded message 37 minutes previously. In that 37 minutes, I cloned a Debian Bullseye VM, installed the repo FPC, downloaded the Lazarus Src and built a fully functional Lazarus.

We don't need no Code Typhoon when building Lazarus is that easy !

Well, safest and easy to wait for the next release.

But if you want to have it now, build it from source. Your existing 3.2.2 will build it. See https://wiki.freepascal.org/Installing_the_Free_Pascal_Compiler
Thanks. I had a suspicion that I have to build it - now it's confirmed :)

If you use fpcupdeluxe it will build it for you and download everything required.

No idea how I missed this announcement back in May but this is great! Looking forward to slinging some anon functions around!
