Where to find recent stable Windows builds

Jonathan Fudger
Hi everyone,

I used to use the "Vim without Cream" binaries to get a recent build of Vim on Windows. Unfortunately these seem have stopped at 8.0.1616, so there are no builds of Vim 8.1.

I am nervous about using the latest overnight build (from vim-win32-installer or tuxproject.de) after trying a couple which were unusable).

Is there anywhere else to find a recent, stable(-ish) build of Vim 8.1?

Thanks,
Jonathan

"Vim without Cream" used to be one of the best. If you can't find
precompiled Vim executables for Windows, you can as a last resort
compile your own. It is not really hard once you get the hang of it,
and it affords you full freedom of which features to include or omit.
In addition to the (formerly Cygwin and) MinGW compiler described in
the last link below (note 4), MS Visual Studio (see note 3) has been
said to work well for compiling Vim on Windows, and there are others,
see the "Microsoft Windows" column under Note 2 below.

See:
        1. https://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Getting_the_Vim_source_with_Mercurial
        2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_compilers#C_compilers
        3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Visual_Studio#Community
        4. http://users.skynet.be/antoine.mechelynck/vim/compile.htm

Best regards,
Tony.

The vim-win32-installer builds are pretty stable. What exactly do you
mean with them being "unusable"? I haven't heard any such complaints
yet.


Best,
Christian
