as you might have noticed, Geany 1.27 is near.
And among all the many cool code changes this will bring, we also
switched to the MSYS2 environment on Windows to build Geany.
Paired with this we changed the build system from Waf to Autotools on
Windows and also the bundled GTK runtime environment is taken from the
MSYS2 environment.

So quite a few changes regarding the Windows support.
Ideally, users won't notice this much as Geany should work as before.

There should be only place where users notice the changes: in the plugin
manager. Beginning with 1.27, we will ship many more plugins like
Markdown, Webhelper, GeanyPG and some more which were not built before
because of missing dependencies.
The drawback is that the size of the Plugins installer increased from
about 3 MB to 30 MB, but hey, you get WebkitGTK for Windows included.
This is more than just batteries :).

Here we go:


If you can, please test and report issues as soon as you on Github as
time is already close to the 1.27 release.

Thanks a lot,
