I think that we should make Skencil's CVS version buildable on Windows before announcing the Windows binary. Thus people can start doing Skencil development on Windows immediately. I have created a Distutils file that takes care of building the extensions and creating the windows installer. Should we try to get rid of the current non-Distutils I addition, the rint problem has to be solved somehow.

Using the define for Windows is one solution:
#define rint(i) ( (i-floor(i)<0.5) ? floor(i) : ceil(i) )
It is, however, not the best solutions, because it does not conform to
the rint definition, and because i is evaluated twice. - Joonas

Now that we have a development version working on Windows, shouldn't we
somehow advertise it on Skencil's web site?

Yes, we should. The fastest way to get this done, is to produce a patch so that Bernhard or myself can directly drop it in, when we have a couple of minutes time.
Skencil might attract a lot of
open source developers and even more new users because it works on the
almighty Windows.

We just to have to be carefull with the development version
that people know that sketch in general has a high quality
and they don't judge it only on this development version. Bernhard R.
