Hi all,

The LCL has finally become completely independent of the interfaces.
When you update your cvs plz make sure that you use the -dP options, and
rebuild clean. Some important files were removed.
Because of the independency an old trick does not work any longer. You
MUST now add 'interfaces' to the programs uses statement. The IDE will
do this automatically for new applications. For your existing projects,
you must do this yourself. Otherwise if you compile an old application
with the new LCL you will get the following error on startup:

ERROR: No interface object. Plz check if "interfaces" was added to the
programs uses section.

To reflect this backwards incompatibility and because it was time
anyway, the lazarus version was increased to 0.8.5 alpha.

A detailed list of changes to 0.8.4a will follow in the next days.
