Which Mingw Compiler is mingw47_32?
Hi guys I want to make the switch to using a gcc compiler on windows for qt.
With the mingw47_32 install package which mingw compiler was used?
I want to use the same for stability reasons,
but there are so many variations its hard to know which one it was made with?
EDIT: I'm guessing it could be one of rubens but even he has many flavours available?
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains targetting Win32/Personal Builds/rubenvb/
MinGW-builds, 4.7.2, POSIX threading, SJLJ exceptions as found "here":http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingwbuilds/files/host-windows/releases/4.7.2/32-bit/threads-posix/sjlj/ (Revision 1).
Hi Lukas, Thanks for that :)
Any particular reason why that build is used?
(-Although the page lists Revision 8 as to be used, it is actually "Revision 1":http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/releasing/2013-January/001042.html, but there should be no difference- It is Revision 8 now).
Ahh I see.
So the jump to SEH exceptions will probably made when gcc 4.8 become stable.
Looking at the development we probably should expect a first release in march
(solely based on previous release times)
Might be a bit later because of the fact that its now written in c++.
Hopefully there wont be many bugs :)
I'm trying to get the latest d3dcompiler_46 into the mingw64-crt for windows 8 (Desktop mode) support out of the box.
I noticed that ruben makes clang builds.
Any plans to use clang with the mingwcrt for qt at any stage?
I'm not aware of any clang efforts for MinGW. But it isn't quite stable, is it (especially for C++ on 64 bit)?
Its working on 32bit there are some testing errors on 64bit.
