Peter H. , myself and a few others have been using v2 under Delphi for
more than a year.  It has been stable for some time now.  Some class
names and some unit name have changed, and has made it much easier to
use than v1.  V1 is now in maintenance mode, all new features are
added to v2 only.  There are a few people than have some large
projects under v1, that don't want to move yet, but for all new
developement work, v2 is recommended.

Already done.  Both the SqlDB and the FBLib persistence layers can be
found in SVN (tiOPF2 only).  The SqlDB layer still needs to be
refactored, to make it even easier to add the other supported SqlDB
databases as well.  Any help would be great.  ;-)

I am in the process of setting up my Linux server to do nightly builds
under FPC as well.  PeterH only does them under Delphi.

I will have a look at LazReport soon.
