[fpc-devel]Okay, another one

So that means I can compile FPC only with 1.0 branch compiler. This makes
sense thank you. What is the recomended or maybe an "official" build of
1.0.x for this task? Do I stick with old good 1.0.4 or 1.0.7 is a better way
to go?

At the moment I compiled fpc with fpc of the same version (the todays
snapshot with yesteerdays snapshot) and it worked well :) Maybe I can find a
binary for IDE 1.1 somewhere? I tried to find it on the ftp -- I do not
remember the details but I know I failed.

Thank you,
