Hi *,
In current Delphi is String synonym for base type UnicodeString UTF-16
AFAIU ATM in FPC is String synonym for AnsiString (as in previos 
versions of Delphi)
Are there any plans to change meaning of String type ?
(like Delphi to UnicodeString , or UTF8String?)
Are there any plans to intorduce implicit conversions between 
AnsiStrings (ANSI code page) to UTF8Strings (UTF-8 encoded) or something 
like this ?
