I have resumed my work on this target after finding that an annoying 
problem with string constants was fixed (i don't know what was exactly 
the problem, so kudos goes to one or more contributors from the previous 
year). Since then, WriteLn and memory allocation was implemented and 
should work as expected.

Maybe it is time to create a branch. I suppose the branch should be 
created by a core developer and some rights given to me so i can commit 
to this new branch. Am i right ?

I have updated the UEFI page on the freepascal wiki with my current 
patch : http://wiki.freepascal.org/UEFI. Most of the remaining work 
should be to implement features using the UEFI API as a backend (such as 
file access support).
