As Hans is also doing GTK+ development, I don't think this is an option
for him (Hans, please correct if I'm wrong). For me and the installer
this is definitely an option, I'm currently investigating the packages
and the results look very promising (also because I'm finally able to
build using MSVC6 instead of MSVC7).
Expect a new dia release for Windows soon. The new release will fix the
incredible mixed runtime problems. And here's one drawback of the
just-copy-the-dlls-over approach: Saving the preferences will still not
work (It will with the new release).
I'm not sure whether the release should be a rebuild of 0.91 or a
snapshot of the current CVS version - any comments on this? Keep in mind
that 0.92 might only be a month away.
