Re: perl-Win32-GUI package doesn't appear in latest cygwin.

  First of all thanks a lot for your answers. After reading this I
have a couple of questions:

- Is this going to be fixed and this package will be included again in
the near future ?

- Is is possible to install previous versions where this package was
included ?, how can I get this ? What is your suggestion about
applications that depend on particular cygwin versions/packages ?.
This is important because changes/problems like these ones can make
applications fail at a moment in time.

   Thanks again and regards.
