Here is some status on my recent commits.

I spent a good portion of the weekend building FluidSynth using MinGW and fixing bugs on Windows. All MIDI drivers should support SYSEX at this point. In addition, the TCP/IP FluidSynth shell server works now on Windows.

Great, thanks for the work :-)

One issue I have run into with the shell server though, is that it uses LF for line termination. This seems to be contrary to the Telnet standard (should be CR LF). I'm reluctant to change it though, since this could potentially break backwards compatibility with clients which use FluidSynth in this fashion. It means that Windows telnet, and likely other telnet clients, aren't as useful as they could be. It would be nice to just switch to using CR LF for TCP/IP shell access though. Any opinions on that?

Well, can't we just chop off any CR if we find one, at the end of each command? Then we would support both LF and CR LF as line terminators?

I remember Pedro was compiling it with VC2005/2008(?) and even had a pointer to where you could download that compiler for free.
