fpGUI v1.0 is available
I'm glad to announce the 1.0 release of fpGUI. This has been over a
years worth of development, so a complete list of changes will be
to big to list here.

Here are just some highlights:
  - Improvements to the UI (forms) Designer
  - Lot of DocView improvements (Bookmark management, Image decoding
    support in INF files, RichView component improvements etc.)
  - AggPas integration as an experimental backend. AggPas is a 2D
    graphics library implemented in 100% Pascal, and includes some
    amazing features that really enhances the quality of fpGUI's
    canvas class.
  - New example apps, and improvements to existing demo apps like
    Maximus and Debug Server.

For more details, run any of the following commands:

  git log --oneline v0.8..v1.0       (console viewer)
  gitk v0.8..v1.0                    (gui viewer)

An archived source download of fpGUI, and pre-built binaries for
DocView (fpGUI's Documentation Viewer) can be found at the following


...or clone the source code repository by using any of the following

from SourceForge:

Pre-built documentation in the highly optimized INF file format

the following help files:
