I've uploaded new test builds to http://download.gna.org/freeciv/packages/windows/testing/S2_4-r24327/

Can't say if there's a difference, in any case it's still noticeably sluggish.

We haven't made the release yet, but creating the ticket in advance to discuss build parameters.


We have one request to use a newer Gtk2 build than 2.24.10 (bug #21038); however, since the official Win32 builds haven't been updated, it seems unlikely we can fulfil this.
(Also we're worried about bug #21475 if we did take a newer one.)
So, same Gtk2 version, I suppose.

A newer Gtk3 library than 3.6.4 might fix a major issue with the existing Gtk3 test build (bug #20999).
But, again, no newer Win32 Gtk3 package is available, so again that's academic.

Another existing problem (bug #21314) might have gone away with some newer version of something that isn't the core Gtk package. Maybe it would be worth upgrading other dependencies if practical?

If no library upgrades, it may still be worth doing another Gtk3 test build if it's cheap for you -- cazfi speculates that maybe fixes in Freeciv code (bug #21534) might help. But it's low priority compared to actual production releases.
