How do I donate money to lazarus?

Does anyone know ?

Currently, the way to donate money for Lazarus is to pay someone to implement something missing on Lazarus (or to fix a bug). More information here: Bounties --Sekelsenmat 13:35, 14 November 2006 (CET)

Can I set the user interface to multiple document view instead of multiple top-level documents?

Does anyone know? I would prefer a Multiple document interface (or rather an IDE-style interface). // Liftarn

It is not possible. At least not yet. It seems the problem is that some windows aren't dockable yet. // Liftarn

On the mailing list Al Boldi said something about the "TStudio layout". "It doesn't use the docking subsystem, because that still needs some work, but it statically docks the complete IDE, with variable splitters, as a stop-gap solution. I even have a new version lined up, that supports docking non-modal dialogs like the Search Window, and the debug windows." // Liftarn

Customizing component palette?


Is there a way to customize the Lazarus component palette in terms of tab-names, tab-order and merging tabs that only contain one or two components. I installed a larger number of additional packages that resulted in and endless palette that is really difficult to handle. Thanks in advance for any help on the matter. --chris 10:28, 9 April 2008 (CEST)

Corrections about licensing and suggestions

I think that the term "commercial software" is not correct (a commercial software is a software that is sold) and we should say "closed-source" or "proprietary". For example, add few lines about what is a "proprietary software", such as "any software in which the source code is not available and human readable". And some explanations about licensing. Maybe even one-line "plain-english" details about the licenses.

The LCL is LGPL with an exception to allow the use of the libraries in a closed-source application. But the third-party components may have their own license. So to makes things easier for the reader, I suggest a table which shows all the components which are available with a standard Lazarus install.

For example : LazReport.

 License type : LGPL with exception
 Can be used in closed-source : yes
 Needs attribution (in about dialog) : no
The section that parts about commercial applications already mentions closed source. As for the table you want: go ahead, create one. It's a wiki. --BigChimp 17:26, 28 January 2014 (CET)

Update necessary, but what?

@Mai: In revision 01B833 you inserted a note that some parts may be outdated. Could you elaborate on that so an editor can fix this? I don’t think this vague blanket statement is really helpful. ‑‑ Kai Burghardt (talk) 00:08, 4 December 2022 (CET)
