Was there any movement on adding Alternative PHP Cache (APC) to XAMPP for Windows?
This would be extremely helpful. Adding APC to a Windows XAMPP installation is incredibly painful (perhaps unnecessarily so) in terms of compiling the needed DLL.
EDIT: APC is already included in XAMPP -- but turned off (commented out of the PHP.INI). Discovered this after a lot of hair pulling and work. Oh well-- learn from my stupidity if you run a search first (like I did).
