MorphOS: Free Pascal 2.0.2 released
Free Pascal Compiler version 2.0.2 is now officially released. Supported platforms, as usual, include MorphOS/PowerPC. Version 2.0.2 is mainly a bugfix release for 2.0.0, which was released in May, this year. However, MorphOS version also includes a few new features.

The following extras were added since 2.0.0:
  • Added datatypes.library support
  • Added OpenGL/TinyGL support. It's not finished yet, but already allows to do things like this, this or this
  • Debug mode in the runtime libraries. It sends messages to MorphOS logserver about file and memory management when you want it to do so (release RTL is built w/o this, you need to rebuild RTL to use it)
  • Added new eyecandy truecolor icons for directory and documentation. Thanks to Andre 'JoBBo' Siegel for the icons. You can happily browse FPC directory from Ambient now
The release includes the following MorphOS-releated fixes:
  • File handling code had some big overhaul, cleanups, and overall it's a lot more stable and robust now
  • Hopefully fixed FPU initialization of RTL
  • Unix & Amiga path conversion was broken is some cases for linker script generation; fixed
  • Lots of other minor fixes
For Free Pascal Compiler 2.0.4, MUI support will be added. First screenshots:
The first PPC native MUI software in Pascal
The first really working stuff
The first simple MUI custom class written in FPC (snx)
