[fpc-pascal] Delphi may have Linux support next year

I don't know it's been posted here yet, but over at the Embarcadero
community website a new roadmap has been published.


Interestingly it seems like Delphi might support Linux next year. From the
wording it would seem to indicate that the compiler will be able to target
Linux 64 bit, the RTL will work, along with some data access components.

Translation: Delphi users who get this updated version next year will be
able to write and compile CLI programs and/or shared libraries on AMD64
enabled Windows, OSX, and Linux computers. Don't expect a visual library or
Firemonkey support for Linux anytime soon if ever.

What might be interesting is if the Delphi command line compiler could run
on AMD64 Linux, but that's yet to be seen.
