It is related to a new Lazarus package repository, enabling easy
search and installation of packages from there.
I feel it is an important feature. Many other languages / programming
environments are popular because they have a comprehensive and easily
accessible package repository,

A unique name for such thing is difficult to find - using English
language - and Mattias suggested using another language like Finnish.
A word "aarrearkku" (treasure box) popped to mind and it was shortened
to "aarre".
This is the same tactics Ubuntu uses BTW, and I like it.
I only wonder how people will pronounce it. Here 'R' pronounces like
in Spanish (caRamba) and 'RR' is double as strong.
The name can be changed if people don't like it.


Regards from Holland. I am happy I went!
