Hello, VirtualBox Team

I am looking forward to devote some of my free time to develop host/guest
drag&drop support for VirtualBox. I have tried this once few years ago, but
didn't find enough time then due to some significant changes in my life.
Since than I have improved my C++ skills and now my life is more stable. So
I would like to try again.

I have read Windows build instructions only to find out that my development
environment is heavily different from the one required. I am using Windows 7
64-bit, Visual Studio 2008, Windows SDK 2008 and WDK (DDK is not
available for download anymore). Is there any chance that I will be able to
build VirtualBox with these tools? I have noticed that requirements haven't
changed much since I have seen them last time (over 2 years ago). Does that
mean that windows builds are not maintained anymore? Or maybe it's just
the outdated page?
