Good news and thanks for releasing it! :-)

I've requested mingw-w64 maintainers to add xmlsec as new package:

https://github.com/Alexpux/MINGW-packages/issues/2404

(Please provide the gpg signature of the package "xmlsec1-1.2.24.tar.gz" at
Github page, something like "xmlsec-1_2_24.tar.gz.sig
<https://github.com/lsh123/xmlsec/archive/xmlsec-1_2_24.tar.gz.sig>". I've
opened a PR asking mingw maintainers to add my own libraries
<https://github.com/Alexpux/MINGW-packages/pull/2391> and noticed that gpg
key is necessary)

Happy hacking!
