Unable to get Lazarus
« on: March 02, 2024, 06:48:11 am »
I read enough to want to try it.

Using Linux Mint Software Manager, the latest version is 2.2, so badly out of date.

Saw this post about latest release, but none of the links work.

https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,66420.0.html

Where it says "The release is available for download on SourceForge:"

http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/

The SourceForge link is to 3.0 files, none of the subdirectories have 3.2. And when I try to download 3.0 deb from this link, I get a countdown from 5 to 0 and then nothing.

So I click the "Downloads (Laz+FPC)" link in the left sidebar, and I get a SourceForge error that "The sourceforge.net website is temporarily in static offline mode."

Is there a reliable source from which a current binary installer for Lazarus can be downloaded?

it was static off-line for all projects, not just lazarus and fpc.
IOW the big sourceforge is down for everybody and is put in static mode.

IT IS KNOW ONLINE AGAIN.

Object Pascal programmers should get rid of their "component fetish" especially with the non-visuals.
