These are ready made packages, together with an install program, to get you up and running in no time. All packages contain a README file, which you should read for installation instructions and latest news.
The latest release is 2.6.2.
Because of a lack of release builders and testers, 2.6.2 is only available for a limited number of platforms and not in all package formats. If you want to change this and build and test future releases, contact us via the mailing lists.
You can download the 2.6.2 release for the following cpu and operating systems:
The source can be downloaded separately in a zip file or a tar.gz from one of the download sites.
The documentation can be downloaded in several formats from one of our download sites.
In addition to the official releases, we also offer so-called "snapshots" of the compiler, RTL, IDE and a couple of other packages on the development page. These are compiled versions of the current sources with all fixes and improvements since the last official release, so please try them if you have any problems. Of course, they may also contain new bugs.
Links to some old releases (not supported any more) of FPC for platforms for which no better alternative exists at the moment can be found here. Don't bother to report any bugs with these old releases - we will not fix them. The main reason why these platforms aren't supported any more is lack of maintainers - if you are interested to bring them up to date, contact us (e.g. using fpc-devel mailing list).
