Hey everyone,

There are some difficulties in maintaining Windows XP and additionally
there are some glitches in the toolset needed to compile Windows XP
compatible binaries.

So proposal is: make 2.77 a last release which officially supports Windows
XP and for the further releases switch to Windows 7+ platforms only. We'll
still be doing 64bit and 32bit builds, but just wouldn't waste time trying
to support new features on a platform which is no longer supported by


With best regards, Sergey Sharybin
