Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development.

GUI
 The new integrated GUI using just one window to replace the Designer, Properties toolbar and Mode Switcher just doesn't seem intuitive or easy to use.
 Therefore, HN 5 will keep the older GUI except its Menubar now has some tool bar options and includes the three Mode Switcher options of Design, Preview and Run.

COMPILER
Filled in more pass 3 compiler functionality.
Also some work on objects such as buttons and their events .

RUNTIME
Filled in some runtime engine code related to the runtime window(form).
Also some work on the interrupts system related to objects such as button events etc.

FREE PASCAL
Some Free Pascal users now have Free Pascal Lazarus working reliably on OS X Catalina so HN 5 should now run on that.
 
TEST LAB
 Started replacing virtual machines with physical computers in a small lab.
 Currently have machines for Windows, older OS Xs, Ubuntu, and a Raspberry Pi.
