Lazarus 1.2.4 (with FPC 2.6.4) Released!

Lazarus 1.2.4 has been released. It is the second version with FPC 2.6.4. It is basically a bug fix release but worth upgrading.

Lazarus is getting bug-free everyday. Here is another stable release of Lazarus - version 1.2.4. It has FPC 2.6.4. The previous version 1.2.2 also had this version of FPC. This version has many new bug fixes. You can look at the changes here.

1.2.2 version seems to be having some issues while I was using it. Some features worked slow. I hope this version would be problem free. It is better to upgrade to the latest stable to get a stable environment. If you can, you should upgrade.

The look is similar to Lazarus version 1.2. No huge change there…
