The Lazarus team is glad to announce that:
      The release of Lazarus 2.2.0
      with FPC 3.2.2

has been scheduled for around
      July/August 2021
      (fixes_2_2 branch has been created)

A first release candidate will be made available around
      June/July 2021

The previous release was Lazarus 2.0.12 which was built with FPC 3.2.0.

The minimum supported version of FPC for this release will be FPC 3.2.0.
Due to some issues with optimized (-O2 and higher) code generated
by FPC 3.2.0 and 3.2.2, an extended support for compilation with FPC 3.0.4
has been added for the LCL.
The Lazarus IDE should be build with -O1. Anyone wishing to use
higher optimization may need to add -OoNOPEEPHOLE to avoid
crashes of the IDE.

Here is the list of new features for Lazarus 2.2.0:

We would invite everyone to provide their feedback to help us improve 
this upcoming release.
Please let as know in particular:
  - Any regressions that happened since the last release.
  - Other urgent matters, you believe we should know before the release.

The intended minimum requirements for the release will be:
    2k, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10, 32 or 64bit.
    gtk 2.8 for gtk2, qt4.5 for qt, qt5.6 for qt5, 32 or 64bit.
Mac OS X:
    10.5 to 10.12; Carbon (32bit), Cocoa (64bit, beta), qt and qt5 (32
