-====== ​Windows ​======+====== ​Documentation ​======
  
 +===== Download and Installation =====
  
-Running win-builds ​on windows ​can be done through IDEs, MSYS, Cygwin or without any other toolset. Simply download ​and run the package manager. ​+Win-builds can be installed ​and used from either Windows or Linux:
  
-Installation ​doesn'​t change system settings ​and in particular doesn'​t change environment variables like PATH, PKG_CONFIG_PATH and PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR. For MSYS or Cygwin, also read how to switch to the toolchain you want. +  * [[Download and Installation ​from Windows]] 
 +  * [[Download ​and Installation from Linux]]
  
-More information can be found in the documentation;​ make sure you subscribe at least to the (security) announces mailing-list. ​+===== Switching ​to a toolchain =====
  
-NOTE: the 64 bits toolchain ​requires a 64 bits host; installing on Windows XP or 2003 might work but is unsupported.+You will need to configure your tools to select ​the toolchain ​you want to use:
  
-====== ​Linux ======+  * [[IDE]] 
 +  * [[Selecting Toolchain in Shell|MSYS, Cygwin and Linux]]
  
 +===== Various Documentation Pages =====
  
-No fully cross-distribution binaries can be realistically provided on LinuxAs such the process is slightly longer and on a separate page in the documentation.  +  * [[1.5.0 Packages|Package list]] 
- +  * [[Updating packages]] 
-The process should take around 5 minutes of user time and from 15 to 60 minutes of CPU time (modern desktop to Atom-class notebook).  +  * [[Updating ​to a newer release]] 
- +  * [[Creating new packages]] 
-====== Linux Virtual Machines ====== +  * [[Comparison ​with other systems]]
- +
-For quick tests, you can download ​virtual machine and run it under one of QEMU, VirtualBox or VMWare. ​ +
- +
-The machine is a Ubuntu 14.04 with little software installed.  +
- +
-====== Other systems ====== +
- +
-It shall be possible to use win-builds on other systems ​too even if this has not been tried so far. The main requirement is a POSIX system with a GNU userspace (sed, cp, etc.). Building will follow the steps in the documentation for Linux.  +
