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.

Nice to hear that the pascal language is still it is my first real language I learned when taking introductory courses in programming.

Wanted to try it out n freeBSD but since I'm running a 64 bits os, I wasn't able to install it. Hope they will deliver that version in the future, so I can experiment with it (what will I still know of that language...."-)

Actually the development version generates 64-bit FreeBSD binaries. Unfortunately 64-bit FreeBSD refuses to run them (probably some ELF header gotcha).

This has stalled the progress in this department.
