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.

Another feature for which FPC rocks is it's ability to generate code WITH GUI ELEMENTS (!!!!!!!) that can run on ARM based PDA's and Smart Devices. I have used it in arm-wince based devices.

Neat, clean and without the tons of GB's and setting mayhem that comes with MSVS.
