This is is the site that needs to come up first when googling.  Not sure
how that could be done.  This site is very to-the-point and easy to understand
and follow.  BUT, it clearly is biased toward downloading _source code_.

One can finally get some information about binary downloads by following
the stable release page (, but
some of the Win32 links are hopelessly out of date.

I think what's needed is a direct link from to something like
"precompiled binaries for WindowsXP/2000/98".  I don't think "Win32" is a
good name to use since it doesn't have much meaning for the majority of
people looking for Windows' software.

Within the last year or so I seem to recall someone (Doug?) posting a list
of the latest and fairly well maintained binary distributions for Windows,
but I wasn't able to find that post.  Unfortunately I have never used a
Windows port so I don't know much about it.  I think the following is
probably one of the best, but being in Japanese makes it somewhat difficult
to advertise for the international community: 

Anyway, could lynxdevers maybe work up a little list of Windows' binaries
that Tom could then consider linking to from the isc page?  Thanks all.

I think there may be a need (of a different kind) to respond to.
