Sorry, I overlooked this one. I guess I grew a little impatient trying
to find it. I usually don't vent frustrations such as these, but I must
admit, I agreed with the post.

No, I wasn't complaining that it's taking too long (I hope I didn't
imply that, as I didn't mean to). I can empathise with this point; I'm
trying to find some spare time around university work to rewrite some
code that makes the backend run on windows using GDI+ instead of GDI.

At the moment, I looking at ways to package up the directory structure
on Windows, with the libs precompiled so that it's easier to deploy
(sort of like Mono). One of the main problems is trying to fix little
application bugs that don't appear on Linux (it's currently
retain/release bugs). GNUstep is quite complex, and some time is needed
to fix certain "issues" so functionality is correct. I'm using a
workaround at the moment with great success (I posted a potential
solution to gnustep-bugs, but I haven't had any comment on it).
