A couple of days ago I posted a windows installer for maxima-5.26.0 at
Having set up the build system, I decided to try it on a current
mingw/msys installation. As some of you know, it is a tricky build as
gcl on windows is touchy. The last version of gcc that could be used to
build gcl was gcc-3.3.1 from August 2003, and you need to have an
ancient mingw/msys install. See the INSTALL.win32 file in maxima cvs
for the details. There has been some progress with gcl. One can now
build gcl with the latest mingw32/msys using gcc-4.6.2 and successfully
build a working maxima. While the build works on 32-bit WinXP, I
haven't managed to reproduce it (yet) on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine.
Anyway, I have uploaded a test installer of maxima cvs 2012-01-16 using
This is still work in progress, and some documentation is required, but I'd welcome feedback.
