Emacs for Windows

Hello everyone,

I've been providing high-quality native builds of Vim for Windows for quite
some time now. The biggest point is that both x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit)
architectures are supported. They have become extremely popular ever since.

Now I would like to spread out news that I've started Emacs for Windows
<>. It aims to provide
high-quality native builds of Emacs for Windows, and once again, x86
(32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) architectures are supported (unlike official
binaries). Many external features and their corresponding runtime (shared)
libraries (DLLs) are already included, so there is no need to search
through different binary repositories to get up-to-date GnuTLS, for
example, or DBUS, and many others. These features have lots of runtime
dependencies, building which is quite cumbersome (if possible at all) for
inexperienced users. From now on, all of that is included in my

I'm looking forward to some feedback, if anybody finds that useful and
wants me to continue to support that project actively. It does not mean
that I'm going to drop that at all otherwise (since I'm using it as well
for myself), but if there is lack of public interest, then I would probably
update it much rarer than I could otherwise.

Kind regards,
Alexander Shukaev
