Unofficial macOS Lazarus Snapshots

I am currently making daily, automated, untested builds of Lazarus trunk for macOS -- Cocoa, 64 bit, Intel + aarch64 (M1) processors -- available on SourceForge. The only guarantee is that the software compiled successfully using a recent trunk version of FPC. THEY ARE COMPLETELY UNTESTED SOFTWARE. Caveat Utilitor!

There is also a daily, automated, untested build of the trunk Free Pascal Compiler for macOS -- aarch64 (M1) processor only.

The only guarantee is that the software compiled successfully using a recent trunk version of FPC. THIS IS COMPLETELY UNTESTED SOFTWARE. Caveat Utilitor!

This page is kept in the hope that at some time it may be restored.

Snapshots are nightly builds of lazarus using the latest available sources and with the latest fixes and new bugs. There are several lazarus snapshots available:

  • Source: Lazarus fixes in zip and bz2
  • Source: Lazarus in zip and bz2
  • Installer win32: Lazarus fixes + fpc 2.4.4 win32
  • Installer win32: Lazarus + fpc 2.4.4 win32 / win32-arm-wince
  • Installer win64: Lazarus + fpc 2.4.4 win64
  • Linux source rpms: fpc (to create fpc and fpc-src rpms) and lazarus
  • Linux i386 rpms: fpc, fpc-src, lazarus
  • Linux i386 debs tar: fpc, lazarus
  • Linux x86_64 rpms: fpc, fpc-src, lazarus
  • Linux x86_64 debs tar: fpc, lazarus
  • Mac OS X powerpc dmgs: fpc, fpcsrc and lazarus
  • Mac OS X i386 dmgs: fpc, fpcsrc and lazarus

Some mirrors only have a few snapshot types. Look in the table below for details. FPC 2.4.5 available only in Germany mirror.


Warning: These snapshots are generated automatically and are untested. The only thing we can say is, that the compiler found the source good enough to compile. These snapshots are provided as a courtesy only. If they don't work, too bad! If they destroy your project files, crash your machine, and eat your disk: tough luck! (just to say that YOU ARE USING COMPLETELY UNTESTED SOFTWARE)

I have written a program with fpcunit and lNet to check, if the daily snapshots are refreshed. You can view the report, which is refreshed every 15 minutes. stopped working.

Download (Source ZIP) from a GitHub mirror

There are several unofficial GitHub mirrors. They allow you to download sources as a zip (including any chosen older commit). To download a zip, open the menu from the "Code" button.

To check if a mirror is still updating look at the date of the last commit.
