This is because in Inkscape team we have developers who use
WIndows/Mac as primary systems and people who are mostly online and
can be pinged regarding builds. Please note however, that earlier this

month exactly due to problems with Windows builds. The tarball was
out, but we couldn't announce the new version, because of the problems
on Windows and temporary unavailability of the guy who built it. That
