I see the main page still says: “Recommended for Linux (all other OS might work, but are not tested yet).” Any further update / timeframe for this?

Comment by Milian Wolff (2010-10-13 11:16:00)

We still don’t have a developer working on one of the other (non-unix) platforms, so sadly I cannot give you a timeframe for this.

Help wanted!
