Hello Chris,

What I did: Downloaded Cygwin along with all necessary packages from 
their website, downloaded and compiled xwMSW distribution from it, tried 
to compile Boxi v0.1.0 and got the following error:

Making all in src
make[2]: Entering directory `/boxi/src'

         then mv -f ".deps/boxi-ClientConnection.Tpo"
".deps/boxi-ClientConnection.Po"; else rm -f
".deps/boxi-ClientConnection.Tpo"; exit 1; fi
ClientConnection.cc: In member function `bool

make[2]: Leaving directory `/boxi/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/boxi'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Should I try to compile it on Cygwin MinGW or just stick to that pre-pre
beta of v0.1.1? Which one is more stable?

With best wishes,
