Today (May 4th), I updated freepascal and lazarus to newer version (2.2.4 and 0.9.26.2).
Now, The Lazarus RAD can be compiled using QT4 interface instead of GTK1 or GTK2. The QT4 interface depends of QT4 bindings for freepascal (x11-toolkits/qt4pas) available on ports tree too ( I comitted it time ago ).
See a Lazarus/QT4 screenshot on FreeBSD at :
Next, I’ll add some lazarus-based apps available on the internet, maybe I’ll need to create a bsd.lazarus.mk file for it.
Last weekend, I was working in gambas2 port for FreeBSD and I have good news about that. I have finished to make around of 29 ports excluding v4l (video4linux) and qte (QT embedded) components. The list of gambas2 ports will be the following:
I expect add it to ports tree as soon as possible, but I need to finish some things before to commit them (tests on tinderbox). I put a screenshot of my desktop running gambas2 at:
Finally, I have updated freepascal ports to 2.2.2 and lazarus RAD to 0.9.26 into FreeBSD port tree. There is around of 70 ports updated and some known fpc ports as unit.
The freepascal units added to our programs some functionalities like mathematical, graphic and sound manipulate functions, access to databases, and much more. If you want to know about freepascal and lazarus, you can visit their websites at:
