Things are in the early days, you are right.  GNU/Linux and macOS have
been tested.  Cygwin builds and works though it has some test errors; we
are working on it.  I don't know about mingw yet.  I think there might
be some errors on the other BSDs but I don't know yet.

I have done exactly that in the past weeks with 2.1.7 and 2.1.8 :) I
think a 2.2.1 will follow very soon (within a month or so from 2.2.0, I
would imagine), so any portability fixes will naturally be included
there.  That's about the same timeframe you are asking for, so all is
well in that regard.

Happy hacking,
