We need to make windows builds using a version of GTK newer than 2.16 so we
can advance the oldest version we support.  But the situation is that the
GTK project has few resources for windows problems, and general responses
on the GTK MLs have indicated that after version 2.16 there were various
problems up until 2.24 when some more resources have resulted in an
acknowledged better release.  So given the large jump in versions, a build
on windows using this later release should be made and tested a bit before
it becomes the "official" version.  Note Geany uses 2.24 no problems on
Linux, but that unfortunately doesn't guarantee no windows problems.

I can't tell you what is actually involved in making the build system
change for windows, but as I said it needs to be tested first.  Note that
for windows there are versions that include GTK with Geany to ensure that
the correct version is available and used, the build system for these also
needs updating.
