We have started preparations for the upcoming Lazarus 0.9.28 release. 
svn trunk has been branched to a fixes_0_9_28 branch, which be used to 
create the release from. This branch has currently version 0.9.27. 
Snapshots form this branch can be downloaded from 
http://www.hu.freepascal.org/lazarus/ and can be considered release 
candidates. Last night's snapshot with fpc 2.2.4 has been added to the 
lazarus-testing Ubuntu repository too, for installation instructions see 

Of course you all have been following Lazarus development closely and 
checked your applications regular with svn trunk or the 0.9.27 
snapshots, but this is your last chance to do so before we create the 
release. Depending on the amount of feedback we get we aim to tag 0.9.28 
next week.

Lazarus trunk now contains version 0.9.29.

Last week fpc/trunk was branched to fixes_2_4. From this branch (with 
fpc 2.3.1) fpc 2.4.0 will eventually be release. I am not a fpc 
developer, but don't think in weeks like for Lazarus 0.9.28, but rather 
months. Lazarus snapshots that have been based on fpc 2.2.5, are now 
based on the fixes_2_2_4 branch and give a preview on how Lazarus works 
with the upcoming fpc release.

If you find regression (things that stopped working), you can report 
your findings here on the mailing list and (preferably) in the bug 
tracker, see for example http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=14400
