Hi,

not sure what do you mean by "we" - if you meant Microsoft then yeah sure, msvc 2015 community is there, but I dont think jumping from msvc 2010 that is already somewhat stable and has had a lot of bugfixes to msvc 2015 that is fresh out of the box would be wise, too much of a risk. Again I am not aware of what is supported for 5.x, will check out tommorrow, in 4.3.8 which was the last one I build before hardening kicked in the highest available option was experimetal support of msvc 2012.

Best Regards,
Rudolfs Bundulis

Hi,

in the context of this question I wanted to ask  is there any chance that 5.x will support msvc 2013 which has the community edition that is freely available? I know that 4.x had experimental support for msvc 2012, I wanted to try and patch configure.vbs to support msvc 2013 but gave up eventually since using msvc 2010 was a faster option.  I know how many issues can arise from changing compiler versions, I just wanted to know if maybe such switch was already in the works.

Arent we up to version 2015 already ? Just saying.
