From previous (S2_6) thread:
Up to version 2.6, freeciv Windows Installers have been built using msys1. For freeciv-3.0 it's no longer suitable. It's simply too outdated, and is lacking many of the minimum requirements freeciv-3.0 has. Freeciv-3.0 will use msys2 based solution instead.
Currently only gtk3-, and gtk3x-clients are being built. Also following features are still missing:
- Audio is disabled
- Bzip2-based savegame compression is disabled (this is usually the default, no less)
- Readline is disabled
There's a build from freeciv trunk r33634: http://download.gna.org/freeciv/package ... ev+r33634/
This is the first build where threaded AI module is built in to Windows Installer. This is 3.0-only feature. It's not coming to older branches.
