I just found out that Windows Vista supports symbolic links. In fact, it has 
a new command line tool "mklink" for that.
However, 1.8.6 says that the functionality is not supported.

So,

1.Is there a more recent version that support true symlinks in Vista?

2.If not, how do  I detect the host platform so I can call Vista's own 
mklink instead?

TIA
