Carbon is stable. Cocoa support is experimental. It needs more people
using it to test it and find problems / request that more classes be
added. For the first users it won't be that easy, but they will clear
the path for the next ones =) http://wiki.freepascal.org/PasCocoa

If you can read german, there is an article in the german toolbox
magazine about PasCocoa and Cocoa development in general:

The first part is in the latest edition. The second part will come in
the next (it's a large article).

You can use Lazarus as just an IDE. And write Free Pascal application
in it which link directly to Carbon/Cocoa instead of using the Lazarus
Component Library.
