As Vinzent says there are some problems with the dos (go32v2) - not sure that these are bad enough to prevent us doing a v2.0.x release shortly - the compiler & rtl seem to be fine. Anyway in the meantime the _daily_ dos v2.0.1 snapshot which has release + fixes functionality and the v2.1.1 snapshot which has the latest development functionality are working, can be downloaded from ftp.freepascal.org/ snapshot/ v20 or v21 respectively.

Ok. My turn. :) This statement on the webpage is "not entirely 

There is a DOS maintainer, but unfortunately I haven't had much spare 
time to work on that further. My latest tests were quite successful, 
the "only" problem still is that you can't debug inside the IDE, it 
still crashes due to - well, let me put it this way - interesting 

Demo programs and that stuff compiled and ran fine as far (there were 
some problems with the DOS specific mouse support, though, but the 
portable units worked).

I hope, once things are a little bit settled at work, I will have more 
time to work on a real release quality version.
