General Development After more than a decade, Lazarus has reached version 1.0. For those that don't know Lazarus - it's a Delphi-like IDE for the Free Pascal Compiler and has widget sets for win32/64 GTK2, Qt, and others. It's very very much like Delphi and instead of the VCL it has the LCL which is cross platform. Syntax is almost exactly the same as Delphi. You can create stand-alone win32/64 executables that require no .NET runtime or even an installer.

unfortunately FPC+Lazarus cannot build DevC++ yet. Though at this time two forks exist

Orwel's DevC++ and WxDevC++

But yes, it is a big milestone. If you need an alternative, mseide is also open source.
