    I have been maintaining a version of DevPascal (mainly for use with GNU Pascal for Mingw) since v1.92 (a few years back). Is anybody else doing any work with it?

      Can I point out by the way, that I have stuck with Delphi 4.0 for developing DevPascal? It will of course compile under later Delphi versions. But none of the later versions adds anything to the development effort.

      I only use it, I don't know Delphi so I can't develop it. And on the rare occassion someone posts a question on the Dev-Cpp forum about Dev-Pascal I try to answer them.

      Early this year Colin discussed setting up a new web site for Dev-Cpp. I asked him about Dev-Pascal, he didn't seem like he was going to continue Dev-Pascal. I'm not too sure if I was able to convince him to do so.

      I am glad to see that there is still interest in it. I know of a number of bugs in it, but since it didn't seem that anyone was developing it, I've never sent them in. If you'd like, I could outline them.

      Thanks
      See Ya

      Hello,

      I am afraid I will not have the time to continue to improve Dev-Pascal. It has been already hard this year to continue to work on Dev-C++, because of various interesting jobs and other projects to work on. Thus, if somebody wants to continue the development of Dev-Pascal he will be more than welcome to do so. Let me know if you want to work on it, and i will take care of making the releases on the bloodshed.net website.

      Greetings,
      Colin

      Im learning Pascal (self teaching, and very begginner) and I use Dev-pas as my favorite IDE, I think its great.
      I write this only as a feed back, its very resonable if you cant continue developing it. So THANKS for your time.

      Like I said, I have been maintaining DevPascal since v1.9.2. The latest version that I have released is 1.9.4.4, which can be obtained here:
      http://gnu-pascal.de/contrib/chief/

      My development version is 1.9.4.8. I am happy to keep developing it, since many people use it now with GNU Pascal. Feel free to send me bug reports. I have fixed a number of bugs over the years, and I may well have fixed some of the ones that you have found. Please note however, that I rarely test it nowadays with FreePascal, so I can only guarantee full compatibility with GNU Pascal.

      The Chief
