Re: Getting the Windows build ready for 0.49 release -- anyone been testing?


Blah... I'm sick. And I'm a little buried in work at my day job.

Expect a new Windows release between now and the end of November, probably
after Jaap's official upstream 0.49 release.

Jaap: what should I call my in-between release? "0.49"? "0.49_windows1"? At
the time I release the Windows build, my code will not have been committed
to trunk, I expect, because you'll be offline as you stated. Almost all of
my changes will be in the 'windows' folder of the source tree.
