Please note, due to me being offline during some time of the run up, this thread will have reduced monitoring (as many team members are only on the mailing list).

Should you not get a reply by a team member to any post you make here, then kindly repeat it on the mail list.

Thank you.

I hope the installer works on OSX 10.15. Lazarus 2.0.4 won't work on OSX 10.15.

Yes, please let the new version work on macOS Catalina.  I had to restore my Mac back to Mojave because Lazarus and FPC weren't working (as well as some other non-Lazarus stuff). :-)
Blessed and forgiven! :-D

I believe a cocoa installer is planned, but I have to get confirmation on this.

Would be great if you could have the new installer work on MacOS 10.15 Catalina. Same experience as previous mentions: 2.0.4 no longer works on Catalina. Please also refer to this thread: https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,47011.0.html
Many thanks for your efforts!

Right now, the System TrayIcon  (Lazarus Additional Component toolbar) does not work as it should on many, maybe even most, Linux systems.

r62020 (listed as "Submitted by developer / committer, tested, waiting to be merged") goes a long way towards getting some functionality to most Linux desktops. Its not great but heaps better than current situation.

I'd like to add at least one entry to its look up table, Enlightenment, see -
https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,46912.msg336373.html#msg336373

(I'd go further and put some ugly stuff in there that allows run time change of behavior using an environment variable but I suspect thats a bridge too far away right now).

Re macOS, in particular Catalina. I am working on the port description of Lazarus-Cocoa 2.0.4 / fpc 3.0.4 for MacPorts, but still have some issues to resolve (You can follow the pull request here: https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/pull/5439). Once finished, updating to 2.0.6 should not be a problem.

It is not a bridge too far away if you have the code already done and tested. Just create a patch and I will apply it and then it will be merged to fixes_2_0 before the release.
If you don't have such code yet then it is best left for trunk / next major release.

One thing bothers me: In the forum topic "Problem with TrayIcon: mantis 35723" I get the impression you don't understand the fundamental development process even after providing many patches.
I mean you fail to understand that all development happens in the trunk branch. Every single change goes there initially.
Simultaneously another regular contributor has the same problem:
 https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=36167
How is this possible? Maybe Lazarus project should explain its development process better. Where exactly should it be explained?
This is strange because a development branch in a revision control system is a common practice in every open source project. It may be called "trunk" or something else but the idea is the same. The details of the merging process may vary but the idea remains.
What should we do to improve the situation?

We already have some pages in the wiki, but they are vastly outdated, or lacking info...

https://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_Development_Process

https://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Creating_A_Patch  This one actually says: "you need trunk"....

Anyway, that said, a patch towards fixes branch should 99% be acceptable, providing that:
=> It was somehow confirmed the issue itself exists in trunk. (The fixes patch is likely to be apply-able to trunk)
Anyway before sending a fixes based branch, it is best to check with the developer who is assigned to the issue.

If the issue is already fixed in trunk, then a separate patch for the fixes branch can not be accepted. The fixes branch then must be fixed by merging trunk. That is, if the fix is deemed merge-able.

EDIT: solved with:
1) make bigide
2) rebuild from inside lazarus (menu > tools > build lazarus ...)

That would be a bug in fpc. https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=32352

Have you tried a clean build?

I solved the problem with first "make bigide", then rebuilding from inside lazarus.
My configuration must have failure.
