This is an unofficial bing release. I ported bing to the Win32 platform and made changes so that the same code could be compiled on Unix and on Win32. I reported the changes to Pierre and he found them acceptable. He made some more changes that were integrated back into this version. But right now he does not have the time to make an official bing release.
This is why decided to get this version out (with his agreement). So here unofficial means that the source code versioning is not done by Pierre and that it is probably better if you bother me rather than Pierre if you have problems (see point 4). Also I have modified the Readme.txt file and the documentation, so assume Pierre is responsible for the good things and I'm responsible for the bad ones !
As for versioning we agreed to use a scheme similar to that of the Linux kernel: x.y.z
1.1.2 also means that with this release can be heavily patched/ modified/enhanced. So if you want to hack the source don't hesitate. When the time comes there will be a new version: 1.2.0 or 2.0.0 depending on the amount of changes.
Currently it's only available on my Web site:
If you have problems getting it, send me an email to:
For more details, see the ChangeLog file.
The best place to start with is still the bing user list. Otherwise it is better if you bug me rather than Pierre since after all I took the responsibility for getting this release out.
