We don't have "targets" or a "roadmap" for FPC as we simply take what's
there and prepare it for release.
It was decided that the changes the compiler experienced since 2.6 are big
enough to increase the major version from 2 to 3. Btw: the successor of 2.8
would not necessarily be 3.0, but can also be 2.10. (the FPC_FULLVERSION
define would support this as it uses leading zeros for values < 10).
