Has the provision of binary bundles for Windows 32 bit and 64 bit

Yes, Tor (maintainer of the Windows binaries and GTK+ bundle) has
stepped down some time ago:

If so it would be nice if that was indicated on the download page. In
the Wireshark project we are heavily dependent on the bundles to
provide the Windows version and as its a truly cross platform
application we need to be able to produce binaries for many platforms.
A couple of weeks ago Dieter Verfaillie offered to provide bundles
for at least win32 [1] sadly there was no response from the core team.

I intend to continue making 2.24 binaries and bundles whenever I see a
new 2.24.X release announcement on gnome-announce-list gnome org.
Last time I checked (two minutes ago), that's 2.24.5 which you link to below.

Also, if one of those releases proves useful for PyGTK (it fixes a bug, ...), it will also be bundled into the PyGTK All In One installer. Matter of fact I'm still waiting to release a new PyGTK AIO installer revision until
hosts newer GTK+ binaries.

But I won't be doing this on github anymore (I've used up all the space I'm allowed to use), so it will move to my domain ( whenever the next release is built (even switched provider recently to be able to do this).

I know this sucks, we're heading toward even more fragmentation and I'd like to prevent receiving a "call to sanity" if at all possible. On the other hand
it's about time things start going forward on the Windows front.

While we're at it, the request to create a gnome-windows-devel-list gnome org mailing list ( still hasn't been looked at. It's starting to get really tempting to just create it on (would take only 2 clicks) and get on with life... But then
there's the danger of a "call to sanity" ;)

So for the record, my offer still stands. Including's download page maintenance. I'd even propose to put links there to the Open Build System to
make sure people are aware of a good alternative too.
