New S2_6 build from r34204: http://download.gna.org/freeciv/package ... a0+r34204/

This uses msys2 base 161018, which means gtk+-3.22 and qt-5.6.2.

I just went thru the whole thread "Msys2 based Windows Installer testing" and tried downloading everything that's pertinent to my machine : 32bit and win builds.
I got r33711+GTK3 and r33711+GTK3x OK. I haven't installed them yet.
ALL the other 12 files gave me a "404 page not found".

And I'm a little frustrated because :
* The end of Gtk2.
* The end of Win32.

It's getting me little left out :cry:

In freeciv-2.6 official freeciv builds are still based on msys1 and those are win32 & gtk2-client is included. I'm about to make a new test build on that line soon - it had some build problems last week when I already tried it, but those are hopefully fixed now.

I hope so too !
Instead of fishing about, What would be the most recent builds or should I wait for a final version ?

As of this date, the link (r34548) sends me to Win64 files only.

Msys2 based builds are available as win64 builds only. For msys1 builds you want to check thread viewtopic.php?f=14&t=315

(Chances are you are actually using 64bit OS - it's just able to run also win32 binaries for compatibility. However, msys2 builds now have also Windows 7 as minimum requirement, due to one of its dependencies soon having Windows 7 as requirement (we inherit that requirement from there))
