While the FPC ones date from gnu or mingw ones (IIRC) somewhere in 1998,
they are a separate codebase since.

I think he means the SDK version from which they are translated.
There is no such things. It is a separate codebase, and patches and new
translations are added/committed as we go.
Many of the more recent (winunit-base) are based on the first Windows7 SDK.
Some of the older units (Windows) might have places not touched since
Standard procedure: if you find problems, ask and/or add a patch.
As one can see, there are not many winapi bugreports in mantis. This is
because they are usually easily fixed.
