Unless I get a 64 bit machine from somewhere I won't be able to test and release 64 bit builds myself. But the 32 bit version should still work fine with no performance penalty, it's mostly the network bandwidth and disk throughput that limit the transferspeed FileZilla can reach.

what? you mean you haven't walked into your computer store and said: "I'm Botg, I'm the founder of FileZilla, give be a 64 bit computer"? :wink: :lol: if i ever run a computer store, you can get one free from me, but don't hold your breath

I wonder whether MinGW can create 64bit binaries, as that will be the compiler to compile the official releases for windows.

MinGW - Frequently Asked Questions wrote: The project's name changed from mingw32 to MinGW is to prevent the implication that MinGW will only works on 32 bit systems (as 64 and higher bit machines become more common, MinGW will evolve to work with them).
Does this help?

waiting for 64b version too. And how about a little feautre request? Upon transfer completion i would be great to have ability to run external command (eg. shutdown)...

64 bit CPU

#10 Post by richcsst » 2007-06-10 02:30

I have an AMD 64 4000+ (socket 939) sitting collecting dust. Motherboards for these chips should be dirt cheap. I'd be happy to send it to the developer IF and only IF it was to be immediately used in a 64 bit development machine. Heck, I'll donate my unused Windows XP Pro x64 too (I use Vista 64 Ultimate now).

So, if anybody else wants to pony up the rest, then we can get a 64 bit machine built for the developer. Remember though, the chip and OS ain't leaving unless it has a home ready for it.

This isn't a simple freebie, I'm expecting a 64 bit FileZilla that works and I don't want to build it myself.

64 bit version

#11 Post by asbjørn » 2007-07-03 16:53

Hi
I can try cross compiling it for 64 bit, but currently cant test the build as I do not currently run 64 bit windows.

@asbjørn :
you can compile it and let the community test it. I can test 64Bit Builds too.

Without a working cross-compiler toolchain I won't be able to publish 64bit builds.

FYI, I believe the free Visual Studio 2005 Express can cross-compile 64-bit targets on a 32-bit Windows, see the first note on this page.

Can't use that, doesn't run on Linux.
