ANNOUNCE a minor feature improvement of libmsgque ...

What is LibMsgque

LibMsgque is an OS independent, Programming Language independent and
Hardware independent solution to link applications together to act like a
single application. Or with other words, LibMsgque is an Application-Server

Highlights of the current Release:

This release introduce a new windows build into the LibMsgque world.
The build switched from the GNU toolchain to "Visual C++ 2008 Express"

This is the official statement for this switch:

  The decision to use GNU tools on Windows including
  automake, autoconf, libtool and mingw was wrong.
  The tools were replaced by Visual C++ 2008 Express.
  The reason was the extremely low performance of the
  GNU tools on Windows which end up in a 20min overhead per
  configuration life-cycle and a 5min overhead per build.
  This end up in an additional TCO of 2000euro per release.

In addition the performance-comparison between "c", "tcl", "python"
and "java" was updated

  -> results:

After quite a wile I'm now able to support python on windows
