Windows x64 binaries?

Post by jgutierrez » Sun Oct 17, 2010 8:44 am

Hello Pierre,
Since some time ago in the development of MP, you stated about a future x64 native build for Windows (the same as exists for Linux).
Are you evaluating any ETA for it, so it can be tested too?

Thanks.

Pierre, I have seen 0.32 is available, but still no x64 Windows builds.
Any chances for testing them?

j'adore!, I´d LOVE to try out an x64 build also!, my main OSes are Win7 x64, Linux Mint x64, CrunchBang x64 and now I am trying out some debian rolling betas of these last two....

Pierre, just say 0.33 with the new Win64 build and it is impressive. General performance is noticeable faster than the Win32 counterparts.
Unfortunatelly Qt 4.7.1 seems a bit more bloated under x64 than in x86, but nothing you can do on that.

He should be referring to the bigger size of the x64 dlls.

jgutierrez, x64 binaries are always bigger than a x86 version due to technical reasons.
