Evolution on windows

with 3 comments

Since many of them seemed interested to run Evolution on their windows box, here it comes
http://www.gnome.org/~pchen/bharath_windows_installers/

This is the 2.26.3 version of Evolution. The installers are generated using NSIS scripts with the best LZMA compressor. I had previously released a stable installer for the 2.24 version but that never blossomed up. The reason I never added the debugs in the installers. This time the Evolution and Exchange installers are separated out and have the debugs for Gtkhtml, Evolution-Data-Server, Evolution and Exchange packages. So hit us with the traces if you face any crashes/issues and we would look at fixing them.

Thanks to Tor and Fridrich for all the porting. A special thanks to Fridrich Strba for setting up the openSUSE build project
(http://fridrich.blogspot.com/2009/04/hundred-packages-in-windowsmingwwin32.html) for making the process of building cross compile packages so much more easier. A 1-click install process to have access to the ported binaries was more than one could ask for.

We’ll look into porting the never stable 2.28 version as and when we find time, but would be some time very soon 🙂 So do watch out for the updates that are to follow.
