My idea would be to achieve a working code base for freely available MS tools, namely Visual Studio Express ( and already obsoleted Visual C++ Toolkit 2003. To me it looks like there is no point in trying to maintain any older commercial development tool versions (VC 6 or 4.2 for example).
Agreed - what about the mingw cross-compiled (or native mingw-win32) builds? I'm pretty sure any code changes required for VSE would apply similarly to these compilers, but is it too much effort to avoid the WinXP/SP2 tie in that comes with VSE (what about people who want to build on other MS platforms?)
Personally, I am not familiar with mingw-win32. My initial thought was, that a stand-alone .exe/.dll -package (MSVC) and Cygwin would do the trick for most of us.

What does mingw do, or have to offer?
You are a star Jari - I'm looking forward to fresh Win32 binaries already :)
Thank you! :-) I will send the binaries to Pawel to have the files freely available from regular download locations.
