    When can we expect a win32 binary? Last win32 release is 5.1.39 from November. How about win64 binaries?

    • colincharles says:


      this is a most common question. people want windows binaries. in fact, the 5.1.39 release showed something like 50% of downloads going to windows binaries.

      we definitely want win32/win64 binaries, but have no resources to support the windows platform. if you can help, please don't hesitate to drop the list a line, so we can have binaries built for windows users.
