Hey Phil.

I haven't seen any more feedback on this on the public mailing-list since I last emailed, so I don't know if you've received adequate, or any feedback at all at this point.

I therefore wanted to let you know that I've now used this build as "my daily driver" since you published it, as a replacement for (previously superior) Emacs 24.5, and I've had no major complaints or incidents so far.

In my opinion, as the one who originally raised this issue, I'm happy to consider this issue resolved.

And let me say: Thanks again for your work. It's really appreciated!

That's absolutely correct, and a major blunder on my part. My bad. Sorry
about that!

I've rebuilt the test-setup for Phil's Emacs 25.1-build using the 64-bit
DLLs provided by GNU:

Using Windows Performance Recorder, the build still runs at the same
speed as Emacs 24.5 (7 seconds intense start up period) and seemingly
loads all external libraries fine (I've tested gnutls, libxml2 and image-
support indirectly through eww).

I guess that means that this build is fine as far as I can see. Sorry
about the noise.

It's not noise, it's testing, and I am happy to see it! Getting feedback
is essential for getting the job done correctly, and I'm grateful for it.

If this build gets published on the GNU website, I would consider this
issue resolved as far as I am concerned.

I've put the two new binaries on alpha


Feedback welcome.
