General Development Recently, Free Pascal (FPC) version 2.2.0 was released. This open source Pascal compiler has - since its initial release in 1993 - grown to be one of the most sophisticated open source compilers available today. Daily, more programmers discover FPC and develop their applications in Object Pascal. Specifically, the development of Lazarus has contributed to this phenomenon: Lazarus is a graphical open source IDE for FPC, with an extensive tool kit to design graphical (GUI) applications.

You're mistaken. Lazarus also does syntax checking, code-completion, has refactoring tools, context-sensitive help and tooltips. Further a debugger, two-way form editor, syntax highlighting offcourse snd you can add your own plugins. Everything a Pascal-programmer needs.

It only doesn't do background compilation (it can do syntax-checking, though) because you don't need that when all your program are compiled within a few seconds.
