Actually Skencil can be built with MinGW without any rint hacks. I
submitted a patch that makes it easy to develop Skencil on Windows.
When that patch is applied to CVS I think that we should announce the
Windows version. Here is the news item.

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. Bernhard Reiter writes:

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.
