No, the VisualStudio-OS.zip is dated on 9.8., thats pretty update.
I think I already automatically create the Bonmin binaries at
Bonmin is a kind of mini-CoinAll which also includes Ipopt.
So there you can also find updated Ipopt binaries everytime there is a
new Bonmin release.

Yes. There is no binary distribution of debug libraries (yet).

It might be possible, but you will need to tell VisualStudio to skip the
right libc libraries. This is what Damien was proposing in his posting.

Redistributing the Fortran libraries is ok, I believe. Or that is how I
understood their readme's. They have a list there which libs can be
redistributed, and these files are on the web.
