MingGW GCC 3.3.1 Release Should Help Mozilla Firebird Optimization

Saturday August 9th, 2003

Brant Langer Gurganus writes: "For those Windows users building Firebird with the MinGW system, there is good news. MinGW now has a candidate 3.3 release of GCC available. That means those optimization bugs should go away. We can finally have an optimized build on Windows." Henrik Gemal has a page explaining how to build Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird on Windows using MinGW and other non-Microsoft tools.

Apart from the fact that is is cool is there any other reason that I can try out building on my PC? Are there some optimizations/tweaks that I can do when I build that are not present in the stock that I download from mozilla.org?

Thx, kris
