New builds for Windows

Posted in

Hey there!

While we're in preparation for the 0.6.0 release, we've also managed to build almost whole LeechCraft from master branch for Windows, and the package is publicly available!

This version is built with gcc (MinGW) first time since quite long ago, because MSVS's support for C++11 isn't good enough for LeechCraft, and, moreover, WebKit built with recent enough MSVS has some issues from subtle bugs to crashes.

Moreover, this is the first time LeechCraft is packaged with MSI via WiX, and the corresponding pull request has just been merged. Because of MSI some new fancy features should be available, like the often-requested remembering what plugins you've chosen.

LeechCraft has so many changes overall, so please try out this package and tell us what you like or don't like. Though we still don't support Windows as good as we support Linux or even Mac OS X, but it's still worth knowing.

And you may also have noticed that we've moved our distfiles from SourceForge to our server. Well, that's basically because of this. Just read the article if you're interested, I don't think I have anything to add.
