I've put a Windows binary build of this morning's snapshot into the
pipeline.  It will eventually show up (probably tomorrow) on CRAN and
the mirrors in /bin/windows/base/.

I'm planning to upload new snapshots as often as practicable until the
release of 1.8.0, but due to travel constraints, this is not likely to
occur daily.
