If you like, I have a python script (that works on both Linux and
Windows) that downloads a package with all dependencies and extracts
the binaries. Combined with the OBS automatically building the latest
packages, it makes keeping your Windows program up to date quite easy.

AFAIK 2.99 is the latest release for gtkmm sofar.

IIRC that file is autogenerated. This is one of the reasons building
on Windows is more difficult: you have to have (the correct version
of) all kind of tools on the build host installed, and that's easier
with Linux package management.

That would be the call of Tor Lillqvist. He builds and manages the
zipped binaries on He did mention some time ago that
eventuallyt he'd like to switch to OBS for providing the 'official'
gnome binaries. May he's getting tired of keeping his msys install
running too ;-). He's also active on the mingw project on the
buildservice, so he is in a good place to decide.
