Back in the Saddle - Qgis 0.9.1 with MSVC
I am back in Adelaide in space , but not it time. My body clock is all messed up and keeping me awake at night. At least it is some other time of the day somewhere else so I can be productive. Qgis seems to making great progress towards a full MSVC build, that may not sound so good to Open Source purists, but on Windows MSVC offers superior compile time and debug capabilities than MingW does at the moment.
Tim has put together a short-cut bundle of binary dependencies so that you do not have to build everything (but building stuff is my favourite passtime anyway). The build works fine without Python-SIP, which will be easy to add and GRASS which will be slightly messier to add.
