Mingw-w64 is an advancement of the original mingw.org project, created to support the GCC compiler on Windows systems. It has forked it in 2007 in order to provide support for 64 bits and new APIs. It has since then gained widespread use and distribution.
The development and community are very active and welcoming with new contributors every month and simple installers.
initial Release: 2016-10-19

Mingw-w64 interacts a lot with other projects in order to help everyone move forward. Contributions have been going to and coming from these projects:
dwrite.h: Added missing DWRITE_READING_DIRECTION values.
strsafe.h: Added missing _STRSAFE_EXTERN_C in cases when inlining is disables.
