Hello Everybody,

just wanted to quickly hook into the discussion:

1. Switching to MSYS2: Wise choice, totally support it. Btw. GIMP is doing the same for Windows builds.

2. Windows XP: It's a question of resources. Are there enough developers willing to maintain the backports for Windows XP? I seriously doubt that. If Microsoft and GTK drop support for XP, then we should do that as well. It's not fair to technically limit (to some old lib versions) the development of Inkscape because of a few users. People surely have their reasons for sticking with the unsupported OS. I dont judge that. But what is wrong with sticking to an old stable version of Inkscape (like 0.91) in this case? If users are not getting updates for the OS - why then for the software?

Best regards,

Ah okay... I'll check this evening. I might have an idea what's the 
problem here.

Should work now (fixed in http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~inkscape.dev/inkscape/trunk/revision/15579).
