    I agree with Jordi, the Windows build is Not ready for a 2.0 release;
    this should not hold up other platforms from a 2.0.0 release as we
    can make the Windows build available when we have a 2.0.1 release.
    I.e. do not make a public 2.0.0 Windows build available (except for those
    who want to test/help debug).

    For those who don't understand what we are talking about, see

    which shows the loading of our build document and the effects of
    just loading, highlighting, and unhighlighting a chunk at the end
    of a line. That stated, it has improved quite a bit in the last
    2 weeks (thanks Martin & Jordi ...), but not yet to a point that
    it is ready for the average end user.
