So far sfan5's x64 builds work for me on XP64.

Certain builds (or even the official ones) might still work on Windows XP since there isn't really any code that requires Windows newer than XP.

However if code that no longer worse on XP is added at some point, we (the dev team) will not make an effort to ensure that Minetest still works on Windows XP. This is what "XP is no longer supported" essentially means.

A script needs to be supplied that can compile Minetest 0.5 dev using gcc/clang, because GZDoom uses them and that program (yes, I am referring to the development version) compiles just fine. I am probably going to have to get Eiion_ceo to do this for us.

From a lay programmers view, It is looking like 0.5 is close. The real limiters on 0.5 full release are the deal breaking changes and stability. From what I can see 0.5 is going to be a huge jump towards more stability, but bugs can always be sneaky and hide till the release is committed to.

Direct consequence: Windows XP is not supported anymore, and old distros like Debian 7 or RHEL/Centos 6.

Please update to Debian 9 or latest RHEL/Centos 7 if you are on those distributions, if you use Windows XP, Microsoft told you to update years ago.


Windows 10 is not an update in my opinion.

I need to forgive Microsoft (God, help me). Basically, I wish Windows XP compatibility wasn't broken (even though I don't play it on Windows XP anymore anyway).
May God be with you, always.
