"You might not be aware of this, but Windows doesn't actually _come_ with a free MS compiler"

Of course I'm aware of that, but how many win32 developers don't own any MS compiliers? If you develop apps for the windows platform chances are you own or have access to an MS compilier.

Edit

I do agree that you shouldn't need the MS one though.

I agree. I don't know how important it is but I agree.

Quite a few. There are several free (blah) compilers / toolkits for Win32. It's quite possible to develop professional Win32 apps without using a MS compiler, especially if you aren't a professional developer (i.e. you code in your spare time, or at home, or whatever).

Would MS VS.Net Professional be able to compile Phoenix (and other Mozilla.org projects)?

Thanks.

i'm still using the 11-14 nightly because i've heard probs in the other ones and was hoping a more stable version would be available. i don't mind waiting a few days, though, if they're spending more time on the probs and less on the export to users. :) but that doesn't mean i'm less impatient! hehe. i love this browser too, nate.

[repost of original message]

It looks like they got the Win32 build working. Maybe we'll see a nightly tomorrow? [/me crosses his fingers like the Phoenix junkie he is]

How come there are so few updates nowadays? Last build for Win32 was made on Thursday, so it's not even every weekday anymore.

Not sure. Looking at the Tinderbox, it would appear stuff is building, but not being uploaded to ftp - but I'm no expert in these things...

If I'm not wrong, Asa said somewhere there was a problem with ftp-stage, so no upload.
