Hi Andreas,

thanks for sharing this.

A few questions:

1. Is nuking the Win32VMMaker and loading the one from 
   "platforms\win32\build\Win32VMMaker.st" still required
   as described on http://squeakvm.org/win32/compiling.html?

   Looks like the code is already integrated in VMMaker, so 
   is this obsolete?

2. Do you still use the ToolChain with the "old" GCC 2.95-2 as provided 
   on Squeakvm.org or is there something newer than
3. Is the quicktime plugin running on Win32? Last posting I've found:


   and there is also 
http://www.fit.vutbr.cz/study/courses/OMP/public/software/sqcdrom2/Packages/Multimedia/QuickTime/QuickTime%20for%20Squeak.html but the changeset is gone

4. When I make the freetype plugin an internal plugin (to distribute
   VM with all plugins + image only) I get:

   ./obj/vm/FT2Plugin.lib(FT2Plugin.o.b): In function `initialiseModule':
   //C/squeak/vmmaker/vm/3115/testbuild/obj/FT2Plugin/../.././src/FT2Plug   in/FT2Plugin.c:419: undefined reference to `FT_Init_FreeType'
5. Are there any plans for having Alien Plugin for Win32 in the Win32 
   SqueakVM distribution? What is the state here?

6. Any plans regarding fixing the "service" stuff (see my posting 
   in "Win32 VM Service facility broken?")
