This is a status update with new builds

On Windows...

To install download and run the installer program

- notes

a) Added full cross compiler support for all i386/x86_64 Windows and Linux
targets. This means you can now cross build your applications to
Linux while staying in Windows.

b) Synchronized the newest compiler and IDE sources between Windows and
Linux. This means both the Windows and Linux versions are built from the
same source and should (in theory) compile programs the same way.

On Linux:

To install open a terminal and run the following commands (you should read
my comments first, link

wget http://cache.codebot.org/lazarus/install.fpc-3.0.sh
sh install.fpc-3.0.sh

- notes

a) Added a new universal Linux installer. It's a shell script which will
build a new compiler and IDE from the same sources used on Windows. It
might take more time to install than on Windows, but it should be
compatible with many distros as long as they are using i386 or x86_64
architecture (requires testing).

I've also created a github repository where I am providing an record of
this Free Pascal 3.0 and Lazarus 1.4 testing phase. It is located here:


The github repository includes the Inno setup script which I'm using to
build the Windows installer. It also contains a new Linux installer, and a
diff file with the changes I'm made to the Lazarus IDE. Links below.

Let me know how well this works for you guys.
