first of all I like to thanks for kind e-mails and messages with positive
energy, this was really important for me in my current situation. After
more than one year of lack of updates for NewPascal,  NewPascal is back to
life in new version v1.0.55 and I have hope to continue progress. This
version contains fresh, ready to use mORMot and trunk of Lazarus and
modified version of FPC trunk in really lightweight form without needs of


NewPascal is a must: I have ban for FPC core mailing list (no more "Daily
test suite diffs" for me) and I don't have access to trunk without any

* Smart pointers / nullable types works, the merge went well and I will

* Florian wants cleaning up of Generics.Collections/rtl-generics. Many part
of code inside library should be moved into other packages
* I have few bug fixes for generics (and not only for generics) in advanced

* Managemenet operators are not so cool without default field, there is
also work-in-progress
* better CI for simple testing has also good progress...
* new more modern website for FPC (with NewPascal as part of official FPC).
* FastRTTI with general speed up for any operations on managed types.
Feature well tested for many platforms...
* Almost all elements were related...

Life Goes On :) I will try to put all puzzles together.

Best regards,
Maciej Izak
