Graeme, I don't what to say, you have your good points here, besides, I'm
not so experienced in fpc/lazarus as you are :) Maybe I'd change my
observations to this point: if there's a project constantly evolving I think
you're right. In my case, when I recently started to dig deep into lazarus,
I do very different actions every day, in many different dialogs, trying to
adjust, compile, compare the results for several of my existing delphi units
and programs. As a result, I noticed several problems in 0.9.28 and with
some of them I could not live anymore. For example, one of them was related
to opening one particular package, selecting unit, and getting AV after
selecting "remove". When I wanted to report about this bug, I tried the same
with svn version, and there it was gone. So how can I find a version that
works for me in this case? In terms of stability, they're all still in
progress, both 0.9.28 and svn at least once wiped by lpk to zero size, I'm
already used to it :)
