I am starting build-0-0-4. Through some research, I think I have found a way to create static lib files in the Borland environments so that they are doing what the GCC builds are doing. I will test it out and let people know what's up during this build.
I am also in the process of adding a Windows 98 platform to the mix. This is somewhat important to building, but I think its definately important to testing later on. Currently I have only been building on Windows 2000, which won't show us problems we might be having with the 9x code base.
There has been a request to add FreeBSD to the builds as well. It is doable (although I have my reservations about it), and, since I'm setting up a machine to run Windows 98, I might as well set it up and dual boot 98 and FreeBSD 5.0. Let me now what you think.
Also, what is the state of our video card support? We're advertising ATI and nVidia support, but it sounds like we have unresolved issues with ATI cards. One of the things I'm going to have to do at some point is get ahold of some cards to upgrade a couple of my machines. If I support FreeBSD, it would have to be a nVidia card, but are we actually going to support ATI as well?
Updates to come.

What I meant to say was FreeBSD 4.7. It looks like the nVidea driver only works on STABLE, not CURRENT

So i think that support is near, at least if the pixel shader is not too tough to program.
