Hi Michael,

      This looks amazing! Last time I built for Windows was ~16 months ago
It was a horrible mess of dependencies installations in Cygwin & really
slow process.

      Does this change anything ? Or do I still need Cygwin + all the
in order to build it on Windows?

      I saw an awesome project to help create a Visual-Studio 2013 project,
but I
am guessing that's just for editing & symbols, not for building nativly on
right ?
