    thanks a lot for geat job. When the win64 installation will be available? Is this 0.13 ver official? If yes, why is still 0.9.6.2 on the main feathercoin page?

    I’m pushing it out to more and more people and will soon make it the current release, a small bug was found yesterday and we want to see if there are any more reports before swapping it for current.

    This release will happily run on 32bit and 64bit Windows, if you want to compile your own 64bit version check the instructions here, it’s a lot simpler in 0.13 then it has even been before.

    ok thanks for answer, will use current 32b version because it looks like UFO for me to compile 64b version 🙂
