Description David Tardon 2016-02-04 10:40:12 UTC
libfreehand contains a separate build system for Windows. But the project files are in a format used by a long-obsolete version of MSVC and they have not been updated for a long time.

The goal is to create project files in format used by the current version(s) of MSVC which would allow to build the release tarballs. (IOW, it is not required to be able to build a git checkout. The difference is that there are few generated header files (*.inc) that are included in release tarballs, but must be generated from their sources (*.gperf) when building from git.) The old project files can then be removed.

The project files are in build/win32.
