LightNet: Cloud source code released

I got the source code for LightNet: Cloud all LGPLed and have included it in the latest release of version 1.5.4. I also put together a little overview of how to develop LightNet: Cloud along with an explanation of why I chose the IDE I chose.

Developing LightNet: Cloud

Background

I developed LightNet: Cloud using a Pascal based IDE called Lazarus. Lazarus is a a very cool, relatively easy to use and powerful IDE that's part of the Free Pascal Project. It is a cross platform, open source and free alternative to Delphi, which was the programming IDE that the original LightNet was developed with.
