Why is the Lazarus development version 3.9.9?
« on: January 22, 2024, 12:05:59 am »
I can only assume that the next release version is Lazarus 4.0?

What happened to the in between versions?

What is the major new functionality or "breaking" change?
Lazarus 3.0/FPC 3.2.2

Yes (as scheduled, but anything can happen)

see wiki lazarus 4.0 release notes though you might perhaps also wish to keep track of Lazarus 3.0 fixes

Next "major release" => release with new features

There will be "minor release" in between => releases with bug fixes only.
The next release will be a minor release, and be 3.2 (in the old days that would have been 3.0.2)
