2.14.2019 Lazarus 2.0.0 Released - With Many Tiny Changes

Lazarus 2.0 has been released. It is the second major release with FPC 3.0.4. It has many new minor changes to look for.

I think you'll agree it is always a pleasure to see a new version of Lazarus. The stable version of the Lazarus of version 2.0, with FPC 3.0.4 has been announced on 5 February 2019. Some major changes include:

  • Horizontal mouse scroll events (for special mice with horizontal scrolling capabilities)
  • High DPI improvements
  • pas2js support - to create a browser or nodejs application
  • Code navigation improvements
  • and many more...

Here is how it looks on a typical Windows install:

I am not quite sure, but it seems menu icons had some minor changes, which makes it look even more professional than before. It brings out contrast between different features better, which was missing on the previous icons.

There are many other changes which are yours to explore! Go ahead, download Lazarus and try for yourself.

As a sidenote, the fpc package for Free Pascal on Debian (Linux) has been changed to fpc-laz. You will have to adopt with the new name from now on.

As usual, many thanks to the tireless effort that Lazarus Team has put to this release. We wouldn't have this wonderful product without them.
