We've received a report that the windows installer can damage the system PATH variable, so I've removed it from the servers and removed the link from the website. My sincere apologies to anybody this has affected.

Regards,
Brian

>    * Most language features work, including:
>       * Unique pointers, unique closures, move semantics
>       * Interface-constrained generics
>       * Static interface dispatch
>       * Stack growth
>       * Multithread task scheduling
>       * Typestate predicates
>       * Failure unwinding, destructors
>       * Pattern matching and destructuring assignment
>       * Lightweight block-lambda syntax
>       * Preliminary macro-by-example
> 
>    * Compiler works with the following configurations:
>       * Linux: x86 and x86_64 hosts and targets
>       * MacOS: x86 and x86_64 hosts and targets
>       * Windows: x86 hosts and targets
> 
>    * Cross compilation / multi-target configuration supported.
> 
>    * Preliminary API-documentation and package-management tools
>    included.
> 
> Known issues:
> 
>    * Documentation is incomplete.
> 
>    * Performance is below intended target.
> 
>    * Standard library APIs are subject to extensive change,
