This one took a while as you all noticed. Why? Different things. GCC did not behave as we expected and wanted it to, Some internal discussion regarding XP support staying alive or not any way more. In the end we managed to: Keep XP working and thus have a way newer XP working CMAKE and Ninja AND Flex/Bison thx to Colin Finck and his enomous work to get this real. So after YEARS we have a official release for you!
