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.

There is a project that is trying to make it possible:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/fpgui/


That's correct. fpGUI doesn't try and be VCL compatible and talks directly to the underlying Windowing System. Which means any fpGUI based application has no dependencies on large 3rdParty libraries like GTK1 or GTK2 does. Which makes application deployment a breeze!

fpGUI now also has a Visual Form Designer to speed up your development.
