From the Editor:
it's interesting to see how our community evolves and what kind questions are raised.

One of the most intriguing is of course what is the future of Delphi. Having asked this question many times, here it was al of the sudden.
Embarcadero, by the name of our well-known Italian Delphi Master Marco Cantu came up with the latest new plans for the Future.
I thought it was so important that we would publish them so all of our readers would be able to take a good look at it.

Conclusions?
Difficult to make yet. Even though there are no real big new items to find, all necessary stuff.
Some great news for Firemonkey lovers: support for iOs and Android and Android native controls. Mac iOs 64 bit support and maybe in 2020 (under consideration) support for Raspberry Pi windows ARM.

For the long term: later this year the 10.4 version - probably September or so.
I see nor real improvements that we all had hoped for: something like the IOT support ore internet support at all. The new roadmap of Delphi you can find it at page: 11.

I am glad that there is a company like TMS that is developing the WEB Core. Updated to 1.2 just now and we will publish the first tests in the next issue. It promises great improvements...

Lots of news about Pas2JS and Lazarus.
I finally found the time to do something that has been asked for many times: an article installing Lazarus under Mac.

We will show a number of applications ready made for Lazarus as well Delphi, while we try do things that are also interesting for starter's and experienced developers. The Puzzle suddenly seem to have quite a lot of problems so we need to solve that first. But there is more we will show some specialties which are embedded in an application:
free for use of course.

Lazarus is coming very close towards the abilities of Delphi. We are working on the very last hurdles.
At the moment we are implementing in FPC (the compiler for Lazarus) three main Items that have been sponsored by a number of companies and the community: Anonymous Functions, Attributes and RTTI.

Generics for Pas2JS are also started by Mattias Gaertner and we will try to get them done asap.

We need funding for that!
If you want to sponsor us - please let us know.
We will come up with some special actions for this. Goals for you: a guaranteed free IDE for Pascal, capable of almost anything you wish for even the internet is included.
And development is fully native.

That should be worth something to you.
Especially the fact that you can now get professional help for your projects through the Lazarus Factory. We have the best developers available. Think of a project and we will build it for you, here you can get information: professionals@lazarusfactory.org

Think of the fact that you will have an IDE that is free! You will not have to pay license costs so you can spend your money on the components you need. So help us please!

We also work on Web Assembly which will become available in the last part of the year.

About the Lazarus handbook
- I have just added the new finalized chapters for Lazarus: Installing under Windows / Linux and Mac, and then start on the ide explanations.
The book will contain something like 900 pages!

If you had pre ordered it you should have a massage about that. If not please let us know. office @ blaisepascal.eu



Click on this file: you can preview all the articles.

There are two versions, because the file is large you will have the choice to either download the very large file of 500 MB or a compressed version of 100 MB.
The difference in viewing will be that the quality of images can be of lesser quality.
We will try to solve this pro
blem.
