Hello AppVeyor,

I've been playing around with the 2019 images and found that they build my programs roughly 30% slower than the 2017 images. If you compare the MingW builds (i.e. the top 2 builds in the following links) you will notice build times of 20 minutes for 2019 and 14 minutes for 2017.

Why is this the case? I have very little incentive to move to the 2019 images right now.

2019 build:
2017 build:

Thank you,

    Hi Nils,

    We are going to look into that. Thanks for providing sample builds.
