just wondering why the following unit(https://github.com/magicmonty/delphi-code-coverage/blob/master/3rdParty/JWAPI/jwapi2.2a/Win32API/JwaBCrypt.pas) is missing from lazarus winunits-jedi https://gitlab.com/freepascal.org/fpc/source/-/tree/main/packages/winunits-jedi/src?ref_type=heads.

The Jedi units weren't really extended after their initial inclusion in 2008 (the unit you mentioned has been added in 2011).

any alternatives?

You could probably simply use the unit from the Jedi repository and add a {$mode delphi} before the uses clause. I have not tested it however.

Note that since the Jedi units are not cross platform, do you maybe want to use it on other platforms than Windows? In that case Jedi units are always excluded because they make no sense on anything other than Windows.

Specialize a type, not a var.

Yes, I noticed. My remark was "just in case".
