Hi All,

Where can I get SageMath 9.1 for Windows? It does not appear in download mirrors.

if it doesn't appear in the download, why do you think there is a sagemath 9.1 for windows ready?

@daniel I understand what you mean. Sometimes it took some time before a version of sagemath is ready, but the version 9.1 is ready for linux at this moment, this is why they made the announcement of the new version.

Strictly speaking, there is no Sagemath for Windows ; there is a port of Sagemath to Cygwin (a Linux emulation library for Windows) that comes with an installer. This is not an easy task, and some glitches may delay the production of a new version.

An alternative is to install the Windows Subsystem for Linux, and install Sagemath on top of that. With WSL1, I had some sucess with this (albeit with a long compilation time). I don't know if WSL2 (which os said to be a vast improvement) is already released in the general public : you may have to install a Windows preversion...

I've been using SageMath for Windows Native for two years now, no WSL and no virtualization. Could you please tell me if there is an estimate on the release of SageMath 9.1 for Windows Native? Thanks.
