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.

Member since:

i'm looking at the progress of freepascal every now and than because i liked pascal very much, back in the old days. the problem nowadays is developing GUI applications for mac os.

in the article it says, that carbon is near complete - but carbon is outdated and it's a question of time, till it's obsolete. no one wants to use carbon applications today. so my question is: what about cocoa?

are there chances that cocoa will be supported somewhen? i've searched the internet on this topic but can't find much.
