Is anyone working on a native version of Ncurses for Windows??

Try PDCurses:


It's 90% compatible with ncurses.

I'm not sure about the percentage. For the normal curses-level stuff, probably. But it doesn't implement any of the terminfo level. PDCurses provides support for console applications (it would be nice to be able to
link with the GUI libraries and make a simple resizable window).

A "native" ncurses for Windows probably doesn't really need terminfo (no real point in implementing terminfo, since Microsoft's terminal emulators can generally be disregarded).
