@thesaint: It's been a while since i last checked that page
From what i remember. i read something about that they will not provide windows binaries in the future due to the devs not having enough experience with windows or something like that. Perhaps i remember wrong.
I'm not that familiar with linux type compilations. My experience have been that it is messy and complicated and will pollute the windows environmental paths beyond recognition. In other words its better not to even try it because it may not even work and will possible break windows.
Sounds like good news though. If it really is that simple now.
