That was msys1 build, right? Minimum Windows version has always been higher than XP in msys2 builds.

Even with msys1 builds XP is not supported in freeciv-2.6, but you may be lucky and not encounter unsupported calls in normal use.

For releases: Tarballs are available from http://www.freeciv.org/download.html

For snapshot builds you need to get the correct revision from git. That's why the version numbers contain the commit id. (Snapshot build happens directly from git, there's no tarballs created at any phase)
