****************************************************************************
* Introduction
****************************************************************************

Please also read the platform specific README file, if it exists.

This package contains an advanced freeware 32-bit/64-bit/16-bit pascal
compiler for several platforms. The language and the runtime library are
almost compatible with Turbo Pascal 7.0 and recent Delphi releases.
There is also partial support for the Macintosh pascal dialect.

News and changes related to this release are described in whatsnew.txt.

Free Pascal 3.0.0 is currently available for the following platforms:
- Linux-i386
- Linux-x86_64 (amd64)
- Linux-powerpc
- Linux-sparc
- Linux-ARM
- Win32-i386 (Win95/98/Me/XP/2000/2003/Vista/7 and WinNT)
- Win64-x86_64 (XP/Vista/2003)
- Wince-ARM (cross compiled from win32-i386)
- FreeBSD-i386
- FreeBSD-x86_64
- Mac OS X/Darwin for PowerPC (32 and 64 bit)
- Mac OS X/Darwin for Intel (32 and 64 bit)
- iOS, iPhoneSimulator
- OS/2-i386 (OS/2 Warp v3.0, 4.0, WarpServer for e-Business and eComStation)
- GO32v2-i386

There are other platforms (like other BSD variants) which are more or
less working, but there is currently no maintainer for them and thus we
cannot provide adequate support. If you want to change this and create
and maintain versions for other platforms and targets, feel free to
contact us, e-mail addresses are listed below.

That sounds awesome.

What is the best way to get the new FPC with Lazarus running?

My school licence of Delphi is about to end and i want to continue developing my hobby projects with Lazarus.

Use trunk, because 1.4.2 won't build, unless you patch lcl/lresources.pp and components/lazutils/laz_xmlstreaming.pas.
Fixes_1.4 should be OK too.

The standard reply from the release managers for FPC is always: "when it is ready" and rightly so.
The release management for FPC is exemplary.

It was just an estimate. Actual duration may vary with many factors. FPC 3.0.0 RC2 is in making

After FPC 3.0 final is released is more likely to be released a new version of Lazarus 1.4.6 + FPC 3.0 or Lazarus 1.6.0/2.0.0 + FPC 3.0?

IMO, 1.6.0 will be better solution
