For the release builds, we are not there yet, I am afraid.

But for development, it works reliably enough; meaning whenever I need
to implement something Windows-only, I do that on Linux via
cross-compiling.  [Only from time to time, installation issues appear,
like the recent missing nss/nspr.]

All the best,
