Resolve #9885 CoqIDE does not work on Windows #10360
@ejgallego : this will be quite tricky because to see the bug fixed here one has to do UI interactions. I am not sure if GTK has something like an event recording and playback mechanism, so that one could automate UI test cases. There are other options, but the (reasonably robust) methods I know of require proprietary UI interaction reco
@ejgallego : I am working on a cygwin/opam/dune based development (and eventually also release) build system for Coq. I would use that. It uses a special cygwin/mingw opam repo, though. I can see if the lablgtk examples work this way. The opam repo I mentioned has binary ocaml packages, so that setup and test should be fairly quick this way.
@ejgallego : for me it is a bit hard to tell what the "official" Windows opam repo is. I am using this:
which did build Coq and its prerequisites and infrastructure tools out of the box with only minor patches (which are already integrated in this repo). This repo appears to be well maintained. But I don't have the impression that this is the "official" Windows opam repo. Do you have an overview?

@vbgl Now that this PR has been merged, and while waiting for the template polymorphism critical bug fix, I'd recommend to release a second beta, even if it is only for one week, like we did with @maximedenes with 8.7+beta2 because CoqIDE was not usable on Windows in 8.7+beta1. If you agree, I can take care of moving the unreleased changelog entries to the Recent changes chapter, and renaming the milestone and project columns.
