Good news from Lazarus... Tiberius has posted the following in a topic at the Lazarus forum when asked for the release date. This time, the answer wasn't the typical "when it's done".

I expect Lazarus to be fully completed within a few short months, and officially released in "gold master" at E3 2005 in late May. It's possible that we'll suffer unavoidable delays, given the nature of the project (welcome to the land of spare time and no budget), but we've been on track for a while now and I really think we're going to make it.
