Great to see you back on this issue ! Thanks a lot.

Unfortunately, for me, right now Lazarus is just a hobby task, as I 
don't have any real application for it at the moment. But I still am 
lurking, and eager to finish the work in progress I have been starting, 
before we (company) decided not to use Lazarus in the way that I have 
been suggesting. An hence I am very busy with other (ANSI C based 
embedded) stuff.

If you want to help with "activeNoGUI" the first thing that is needed to 
be done is verify if a current "standard" distribution of Lazarus will 
install an fpc version that provides TThread.Queue.

If this is given I will re-test the code I did for the "activeNoGUI" 
"interface" unit (that provides TApplication etc).

Then I could send you the code to do more testing and provide suggestions.

If we are happy with the results we could investigate how it is possible 
to have it integrated in the Lazarus IDE as an additional selectable 
"Widget Type".

Thanks again,
