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.

Carbon is considered deprecated by Apple.However not by the users, since it seems the main widgetset used on Mac. What do you think the Offices, Adobe Reader and the many Aquifications of X apps (like e.g. LyX)use?

Carbon is way full featured enough, and is better suited to be accessed from existing applications.

Cocoa is an application framework, not a pure widget set. Even to the language (admitted, you appear to be able to avoid Objective C, but it is harder)
