I am in agreement with you - I think the added bundle size probably
wont deter the majority of users and the convenience of having
everything 'just work' will be a big advantage. I think we shoud avoid
at all costs maintining two versions of the installer since inevitably
it will become burdensome and one of th installers will achieve poor
relation status...

Great work! I will try to install it on a virgen xp image tomorrow and
then go ahead and start announcing the release more widely.

Best regards

> Hi All,
> Latest windows installer is here:
> http://whatnick.dyndns.org:8080/tisham/qgis_setup0.9.0.17_10_2007.exe
> It features bundled Python25.dll-Sip and PyQt4, so the users can install
> without downloading anything else. Since Python is the big new feature
> in 0.9.0 I hope this installer will become accepted with only minor
> changes. Making a Python free one will be a bit more copy pasting and
> rebuilding, I don't want to do make it unless it is really necessary.
> For anyone interested in GML, I finally have Xerces working in
> Mingw-linked statically to gdal. I will make a new installer featuring
> that once I have some time.
> Please give me some feedback.
