Agreed, I was initially under impression that you already had the trunk working on Windows,
but I agree that it makes sense to hold off a release until we do.

So, as a "mini roadmap" we probably agree that it makes sense to work towards a next release
that "works on Windows".

I agree, and maybe it also makes sense to try and setup some continuous build on Jenkins.
I have no clue if Jenkins supports C projects, or how other C/C++ projects at Apache approach
this, but that might be worth inquiring about.
