Does anybody know the status of www.mingw.org?

At least from 2021-01-10T15:19:40Z, I cannot access www.mingw.org.
As far as I know, that is the official mingw web page.

Does anybody know the status of www.mingw.org? Or, any other suite place to ask this question?

    I stopped using http://mingw.org/ ages ago as it was getting behind on newer Windows API additions and newer gcc versions.

    Instead I really recommend MinGW-w64, which supports both Windows 32-bit and 64-bit.

    If you want to keep your old MinGW on your system and would like to give MinGW-w64 a try without interfering with your installed version, you can download a standalone build from http://winlibs.com/ that you just need to download and extract.

    If you use MSYS shell you should also switch to the newer MSYS2, which is a lot faster.
