Lazarus 2.0 release - push to Rawhide or wait?

Just a couple of minutes ago, version 2.0 of Lazarus, the Pascal IDE / GUI toolkit was released.

Here's the link to the changelog; there are a few compatibility-breaking changes:
<a href="http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_2.0.0_release_notes" title="http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_2.0.0_release_notes">http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_2.0.0_release_notes</a>

Lazarus is used to compile a few other Fedora packages, thus I'd want to avoid just upgrading it to v.2.0 and calling it a day without checking how it affects the dependent packages. I could submit an F30 change proposal, though that would be way past the deadline. On the other hand, putting v.2.0 away until F31 means users will be stuck on the old version for quite some time.

I'd be thankful for any input on this dilemma.

A.I.

TLDR; Any known compatibility problems? How major of a release is it?

May be best to request a side tag to let everyone work out the kinks before
merging it back in (arbitrary side tags would be nice! <cough> <cough>)

I know I need it for Hedgewars...

Thanks,

I've made a COPR repo with Lazarus 2.0. If you can test Hedgewars using it, that'd be great.

Do you have by a chance some test build in Copr, so I could test my
Doublecmd package?

I honestly have no idea if it could work with 2.0 or not.

Thx

I've made a COPR repo so you can test if your packages build ok.

Thx. The DoubleCmd builds and runs just fine.
