There is not a lot of direct feedback on the Windows nightly builds so it
is good to hear that Ardour on Windows is working well for you. There has
been a fair bit of change introduced to the master branch in the last week,
so if you notice any issues please report them in the issue tracker.

There is also the #ardour-windows IRC channel on freenode.net that you can
use to get in touch with other people interested in Ardour on Windows, but
it is usually fairly quiet.

I don't know if there is any update on an official Windows release, but if

There has been no decision made on when an official Windows release of
Ardour will be available that I am aware of.

I have been using Ardour on Windows for several years now and it has been
gradually improving to the point that I think it is comparable in stability
to the linux release but there are issues with some Audio Hardware/Drivers,
plugins and likely a few Windows specific bugs.

Identifying Windows specific documentation and or tutorials you feel are
needed is a good first step. I believe contributions to the manual are also

Until an official release of Ardour for Windows, your continued use of the
nightly builds and constructive feedback via email/issue tracker/IRC/etc
would be appreciated.
