Mingw-w64 is an advancement of the original mingw.org project, created to support the GCC compiler on Windows systems. It has forked it in 2007 in order to provide support for 64 bits and new APIs. It has since then gained widespread use and distribution.
The development and community are very active and welcoming with new contributors every month and simple installers.
You can also look at the full list of versions.
Mingw-w64 interacts a lot with other projects in order to help everyone move forward. Contributions have been going to and coming from these projects:
It shouldn't have been specified static because the C standard requires that 'any declaration of a library function shall have external linkage' (N2176, 7.1.2, 6). The static specifier might exist for a reason, so please prepare a patch and send it to our mailing list for further discussion.
warning: 'strtof' is static but used in inline function 'xxx' which is not static
Hello, I have an issue with mingw-w64: My program, which uses Allegro 4 to show some graphics and prints a bunch of debug info to stdout, runs terribly slow when compiled with mingw-w64 (ye' olde mingw32-gcc is fine) and run inside a regular conhost window or using winpty. I'm talking two orders of (frame rate) magnitude: Regular conhost: 10 FPS game Regular conhost, redirect to NUL: 58 FPS game >NUL minTTY: 1200 FPS (goes down to 240 after a couple seconds due to more debug messages) mintty ./game...
include: Add concurrencysal.h to the headers.
include: Move MEMORY_PRIORITY_* from winbase.h to processthreadsapi.h. Add a few PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE, SECURITY_CAPABILITY, and SECURITY_BUILTIN defines.
specstrings.h: Add _Post_equals_last_error_ to specstrings.h.

Hey, just came here by a Google to missing "libgfortran-5.dll" and thanks to you I found it out. In my case, I am using MSYS2 on Win10 with installed mingw-w64-x86_64-toolchain. I finally found the DLL in "C:\msys64\mingw64\bin".
