Hi all,

I propose to do it in 2 steps as changing the library is more work than upgrading the current one:
- first recompile version 1.6.6 and see if it solves the build issue with MSVC2015 (I'm gonna cross compile it as I have the environment). I will send an email once it is ready for testing (as I did for Lua).
- then eventually change the library (and keep backward compatibility with the older one?).

Cheers,
Pascal.
