Projects joined MinGW-W64, and the new builds will be available on the MinGW-W64(https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64) site.
- std Thread support library
- std Atomic operations library
- Native TLS Callbacks
- Wide-Character Startup (-municode)
- 32-bit and 64-bit Windows
- Multilib toolchains
- Cross-compiling from x86_64 for i686 and vice versa
This is a wonderful project. Everything works flawlessly except for the mercurial package. There is no documentation on how to set this up to work. The hg command seems to be looking for Python in the C:\ directory even though Python is available in the mingw64 build. Installing Python26 in the C:\ directory still doesn't resolve the issue as it is looking for something in the Lib\site-packages directory that doesn't exist. Still, aside from mercurial... all seems to work flawlessly.
Edit: I want to reduce the rating because I just found that this distribution has a wrong stl implementation (it includes unrequired headers, so you ends having a code that compile only with this distribution and not with other compilers: msvc, clang) an example of what I say: <typeindex> is included from <typeinfo> (wrong) <functional> is included from <unordered_map> (wrong) So you produce code that is not valid C++ code
Qt_builds : Awesome
This is just great :-) I've tried to compile Qt 5.2.1 with MinGW-builds 64-bit several times but it always failed. Is it possible to update the Wiki or a "README" file of how the compilation was done? This would be helpful for all of us who would like to be independent of "this good will" :-)
