This page is an attempt to record all the news stories about Free Pascal and Lazarus. I say "an attempt" because it will undoubtedly fail and be consigned to the dustbin of history if no-one contributes news stories that they know of or stumble across. It is not something which any one individual can do alone. It takes a community. As the longest journey begins with the first step, here is that first step.
