Is there a Windows version?

Version 5.0 builds are available, based on the Mingw-w64 environment and compilation from Cygwin.

More recent versions are not built in this way, as some optional prerequisites do not seep to support this platform any more so these builds will probably be discontinued in the near future, unless we receive help improving the build system for Windows, which would be welcome.

For Windows users who are somewhat familiar with the command-line, the code may also be build on the Linux subsystem for Windows, in which case the Linux installation instructions can be used, The GUI requires an X-server, which is not officially supported, but seems to work.
