Maximus is very basic at the moment. A project manager, syntax 
highlighting in editor, macro support in the settings dialogs, Find and 
Procedure List (filtered searching of current unit), build groups etc.

No debugging, code completion, code templates or code navigation yet. I 
still need to figure out how to integrate fcl-passrc parser to enable 
such features. At the moment the goal of Maximus is more an "advanced 
demo", than a full feature IDE. I like the idea of fpGUI being 
independent of any IDE.

I've tested in OpenSolaris 2009 release, but I don't have Solaris 8 to 
try. I can say that I have run fpGUI executables under Linux SUSE 9.0 
(almost 10 year old distro) too, without any issues. fpGUI only needs 
the most basic X11 and Xft libraries - nothing else. This makes it work 
on just about any system that can run X11.
