Testers 3.2.2

From Lazarus wiki

Anybody willing to contribute FPC and help to increase release quality by participating in systematic testing of release candidates and short checking of the final release. Note that this testing differs at least partly from just using the particular build for your own purposes, because you are supposed to perform a minimum set of defined operations, let us know when the testing is finished and report your results in certain time period (usually not more than one week - exact dates are provided when the builds are available).

To test a release at least do the following. If some part is not available for the specific target you can skip it offcourse

   Install the release (check that the version-numbers are correct)
   make sure readme.txt & whatsnew.txt are for the current version
   Read updated text files as distributed in release zip files
       readme.txt
       faq.txt
       whatsnew.txt
   run all distributed executables (in bin/*)
   open the installed hello.pp in IDE
   make a minor change in the demo in IDE & save it
   compile the demo file in IDE
   run the demo within the IDE (debugger)
   view documentation in IDE, traverse 2-3 pages (at least one with screenshots)
   make cycle with newly installed binaries and sources
   run testsuite
   Check PDF documentation (open all files)
   Check HTML documentation, if any
   Check TXT documentation, if any
   Check CHM documentation, if any

Instructions for the make cycle and testsuite are on the How to start page. Compare testsuite results against results from the previous published release; any new failures are regressions that should be reported.
