My regards to lazarus.su (in Russian). It’s 1st April post was:
Lazarus developers announced that the IDE source code is closed and sold to Embarcadero. Under the unconfirmed information the last Lazarus version 0.9.30 will become the base for the next Delphi release – FPC Edition.
Lazarus team was forced to make this step due to lack of sponsorship. They can’t continue to work on the project. On the other hand, by acquiring Lazarus code the Embarcadero is hoping to release the long-awaited Delphi versions for Linux and 64-bit platforms.
