General Development After five years of development, Free Pascal 2.0 is ready. With the new compiler, its authors believe they are ready to become a larger open source development platform. In the MS-DOS world, Pascal was one of the major programming languages and is by means of Borland Delphi an important programming language in the Windows world. In the open source world, Free Pascal is the leading Pascal compiler and while open source is a bit biased using the C language, the Pascal language has a lot to offer to open source programmers.

At this moment LCL also buggy and little bit incompleted. The main missing thing is the dbExpress (but the ZEOS port of Lazarus seems hopefully) and the MDI windows.
The biggest bug IMHO in the datagrid in the CVS version: if you scroll out the cursor from the grid only the last visible line will be repainted.

But because the full LCL is open source, at this moment a new Lazasrus project better idea then new Kylix project.
