Then please release ASAP.

I have one sincere question: Will FPC 3.0 happen this year?
Typically from RC1 it takes ~3-4 months to the release. Now we don't
have even RC1 in sight.
Say you build RC1 after 2 months, that's August.
3-4 months from that will be November or December, still (barely) in this year.

Sorry I am joining the group asking about schedule but the situation
is getting annoying.
More and more often a development version of FPC must be recommended
for people because of Unicode, generics and many other improvements.
It does not feel right. Fortunately fpcup is now maintained again but
it cannot replace an FPC release obviously.

Are there open issues blocking the release? Do you need help with them?
