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.
You can also look at the full list of versions.
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:
widl: Allow overriding the default include path
widl: Regenerate Makefile.in and configure
include/winioctl.h: Add new device types.
Dear Kai, Thanks for the reply and I agree with what you wrote. Best regards, HEMMI, Shigeru
Hi, well, any fortran application needs libgfortran runtime. Therefore I assume that fortran library is linked statically here. No idea why that happend, but it seems to me the most obvious cause.

Ok. I usually install mingw-w64 via the installer mingw-w64-install.exe available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/ . On this same link I usually check if a new compiler version has become available (but it's not clear if the same compiler has been re-released) So, who should I ask to, or on what other url should I check ? Is there a list of these toolchain providers ? Thanks, Marco
We don't dictate toolchain release schedules, you can always ask the providers themselves.
