Hi Robert,

This is a question that comes back every now and then :)

Porting to win32 bit is easy, but maintaining it is never trivial. Once we
do this, we should be prepared to provide fixes, upgrade, take into account
new compilers etc...
With Gluon, we want to add it to our list of support JavaFX LTS
configurations if there is enough commercial interest, so that we can
justify the effort.
