No, right now it's only "building". That means the software can be 
compiled and only GStreamer so far. The next step will be to compile 
some gst-plugins stuff. Both from command-line and VS.Net 2003. I really 
doubt it will be possible to playback/capture in Windows with GStreamer 
soon, conversion and misc processes that don't require hardware should 
be possible... Also in CVS it is already possible to build GStreamer 
using msys/mingw.

The changes were just fixing some compiler incompatibilities. Not much 
code has been rewritten for the port.
