Not yet, but it doesn’t work for me, which it used to do :-), same issue.

In the meantime, I usually have a pre-built one here;


It’s not absolute latest rebar but it should work for most projects, built from R14B04 so it should work everywhere. Just drop it in your path.

I’m travelling today but will take a look early next week unless somebody else gets to it first.

BTW I’d like to see rebar do the same thing as in erica, https://github.com/benoitc/erica/blob/master/bootstrap#L45-L56 where the unix version creates a working windows one. It makes it very easy to maintain a working version for both platforms without actually having to use windows ;-).
