Mingw-w64 is an advancement of the original mingw.org project, created to support the GCC compiler on Windows systems. It has forked it in 2007 in order to provide support for 64 bits and new APIs. It has since then gained widespread use and distribution.
The development and community are very active and welcoming with new contributors every month and simple installers.
You can also look at the full list of versions.
Mingw-w64 interacts a lot with other projects in order to help everyone move forward. Contributions have been going to and coming from these projects:
This project has not been updated since gcc 8.1. I now can download latest 9.1 packages using msys2 pacman. Does this mean that releases are under migration from SF to msys2?
crt/math: Implement standard-conforming `frexp()`.
crt: Regenerate configure.
Fix building runtime for Cygwin
include/ddk/ntintsafe.h: Remove `WINAPI_PARTITION_SYSTEM`.
crt: Make a compat ___mb_cur_max_func on i386, to avoid forcing a dependency on XP
crt: Regenerate Makefile.in
