As Peter mentionned it, the win32 build is clearly in pre-alpha state.
You could make some layout, but for now, no postscript export nor pdf
export. Don't speak about printing So you could not make a lot a thing
from your work.
To be more precise a lot of work is still to be done in cvs :
- first correct some glitches in the main application
- make PostScript export and Pdf export work : qtwin-free behavior is
not always what is expected, even in latest snapshot.
- make plugins system function correctly and not crash , probably the
most careful work to be done, as memory management between modules is a
hell on win32 compared to what it is on *nix. Craig Ringer will
implement a new plugin system in 1.3.1 cvs, more portable than the
- provide printing functionnality, first using pdf export and call to
Acrobat (or the default application), and only after using gdi(+) or
postscript print path depending on printer type.
