Issues with 2.4.2 release candidates

This page is supposed to contain all issues discovered while testing release candidates and their status. Make sure to include information about the platform where the problem appears (if applicable). Once the issue gets resolved, you should strike it over and add number of SVN revision fixing it. If the revision number refers to a SVN repository different from "fpc" (i.e. "fpcbuild" or "fpcdocs"), include information about the SVN repository too.


  1. cpu-os: IE209101221 while compiling XYZ.pas - r123456
  2. docs: missing description of XYZ
  3. readme.txt: wrong version number - r654321 (fpcbuild)

Issues with 2.4.2-rc1

  • merged r 15101 causes a regression compared to 2.4.0 (mantis #17283) -- fixed in r15936
  • merged r14184 causes a regression compared to 2.4.0 (mantis #17383) -- reverted in r16036
  • whatsnew.txt does not mention the updated univint units -- r791 (fpcbuild)
  • The merge of 13996 requires that people call TryInitializeIBase instead of InitializeIBase if they don't want to guarantee that all functions are available. This has not been documented anywhere, and there may be more changes to units converted to Ivo's new "libhandler" scheme that exhibit the same problem.
