[lazarus] Lazarus stable developer release?

We should probably start a somewhat scheduled release. If the compiler is
modified to work with lazarus that will go with the next release. Until a
compiler patch is made that is done to fix something in lazarus we stick
with the old one.

Right now until 1.0 these are only somewhat developer releases except for
the fact that
the class libraries are almost fully usable. If mwEdit can run on lazarus
LCL then just 
about anything should be able to be built with it "mwEdit is one brutal
piece of code".

There is nothing wrong with Windows 2000 that LINUX won't fix!!!

Well we can create a snapshot but what FPC snapshot do we base it on?

That is assuming it is a snapshot of compiled units. I don't think we
can base it on a release version of FPC since bugs have been fixed to
work with Lazarus. That means I will have to bundle a snapshot of the
compiler along with the units.

Or we can just build a snapshot of the source that needs to go along
with a snapshot of the compiler that they can download. However after we
do all of that if they want to keep up with development they will have
to use CVS, hence the need to make sure that the HowTos are correct. 
Which we are finding they are not.

Any opinions?

Should we create what we could call a release snapshot of the source?

If they want further updates they must use CVS until we do another
release snapshot every few weeks?

What I am afraid of is that someone will try to use Lazarus with the
wrong compiler (not the latest) and we will start to create a bad
impression of the product both Lazarus AND FPC.
