Even in 7.0.10, you can just select all the objects, and then change the
color in the Properties tool - it will change the color of all the
objects at once.  No need to wait for 7.1.x...

I started work on a Windows version of Ipe that uses the native Windows
API (not Qt), and which is nearly done.  Finishing this is now my top
priority for Ipe (thanks to several people who recently asked her not to
abadon Windows :-) - I hope to get this done during the winter break.

In principle it should also be possible to install the compilers and
tools for compiling Ipe with Qt on Windows, but I simply don't have time
to worry about that right now.   The new port won't be as pretty as
using Qt, but it will be much easier to maintain (as it only uses very
stable parts of the Windows API).
