Jump to navigationJump to search

The Free Pascal Application Suite plans to bundle many useful applications written in Free Pascal in order to help increase the popularity of applications written in Pascal, in order to demonstrate the power of Lazarus/Free Pascal and also in order to have a good kit of applications for the Free Pascal Window Manager.

What should all applications in this suite have?

  1. Free/Open software license for the application, such as GPL, BSD or something like that
  2. Available in a public subversion, such as provided by source forge, googlecode, etc
  3. The applications should be cross-platform.
    1. For the Desktop version:
      1. An Inno Setup installer for Windows. See also Inno Setup Usage. Best practices recomendations (not required): High DPI, Windows Icon.
      2. RPM and DEB packages for Linux.
      3. Mac OS X Application bundle.
    2. For the Mobile version: Installers for Windows CE, iPhone and Android
  4. Some kind of stable release every once in a while
  5. A bug tracker (as soon as people use the application, they will start reporting bugs)


Release 0.1 (targets mostly Windows)

  • Lazarus Image Editor 0.9 - A raster image editor
    • Download for Windows 32-bits: http:/
    • Download source code: Lazarus-CCR rev 2285. See Lazarus Image Editor
