What is the preferred order of units in the uses clause?

1. uses Interfaces, Forms, MyForm;
2. uses Forms, Interfaces, MyForm;

Are you going to update the examples or should I send you patch for it?

> The LCL has finally become completely independent of the interfaces.

> 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.
