Okular on Windows

We are shortly before the first distribution of the kdegraphics package from the snapshot sources 4.0.63 with support for pdf files using poppler.
I have worked most of my time on the buildsystems of poppler, freetype and fontconfig - since poppler is integrating the cmake buildsystem thanks to Pino Toscano (who wrote the cmake files) I got even more work as I have to merge the patches to their git repository. This brings a lot of fun when you do not have a native git (until now I haven't found a usable native git version) and some changes needed for msvc cannot easily be brought upstreams.
I have to admit that I have stopped providing new packages on my own server - this makes no sense in the moment since Dirk Mueller is providing snapshots of KDE roughly every week which makes my own packages not needed anymore.
I will probably set up the mirror again in the next weeks so that extra packages that are freshly available can be used with the last snapshots. Looking into my crystal ball I can see that even though koffice isn't in a good state yet, it has reached the state where it builds most of the time and where we can provide a package.

Btw: I will not attend Fosdem since it is over 1000km away - I will be at CeBit on tuesday and probably wednesday though. If you're there too, you want to see how good looking KDE on Windows is and want to chat a bit, just come around to the KDE booth.

tsk, "over" 1000 km is the wrong attitude, you should think "only" 1000km! ;)

Do you have the libspectre (PostScript) generator working too? If not, it's probably worthwhile porting, there's lots of PDF viewers already, but most of the ones which also support PostScript are *nix-only.

Um..where do I download Okular for windows?

(Seeing as google shows your blog post as the first hit for "okular windows" I assume this is the right place to ask.)

I downloaded the kdewin installer, but on the package list it doesn't show okular, and http://okular.kde.org/download.php doesn't mention windows. Do I need to install kde-base or something? (Would prefer not installing too much extra software...)

I very much want to get rid of foxit, which, while much better than acrobat, is still unfree.

I knew the Metin2 gold so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the Metin2 yang that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the Cheap metin2 yang together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to Buy metin2 gold more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some Cheap metin2 gold as the gifts to encourage me.

Since no one has answered my question here yet, I will give the answer that I believe to be correct...

If you want to install Okular on Microsoft Windows, you most likely need to install kde-win and select the kdegraphics package (at least if http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/KDE_on_Windows/Installation is anything to go by, I don't have a Windows box to try it on right now).
