Monthly update for April, 2018

Continued working on UFORadiant in April. The goal is to make it work on Gtk3. This is a long and tough journey, help is welcome!

At a point I successfully broke the compilation on Windows - simply because our Code::Blocks bundle contains way too old Gtk library. So half the month was spent on evaluating new compilation methods for Windows users. The winner became an MSYS2 + Code::Blocks combination as that looks to be the easiest way to set up an up-to-date environment even for less experienced people. If you'd like to give it a try, check out our Compile_for_Windows atricle.
