I'm about to release cygwin 1.5.0. We've bumped the version to
1.5.0 because of some major changes in functionality - cygwin now
uses 64 bit file I/O by default.
This was a substantial effort on the part of Corinna Vinschen who
deserves major kudos for her work (which was entirely volunteered).
Corinna deserves five gold stars for this work. It *really* was not
an easy task.
Anyway, expect a testing version of 1.5.0 soon. Just to whet your
appetite a little, [...]
You definitely did wet my appetite a lot. And I guess it is high time to
say the big "thank you" I owe to the contributors to cygwin who made it
invaluable to me. Thanks to all of you for your efforts and work.
So, barring any problems, expect a test (aka Exp) version of the
cygwin DLL soon.
Since you are going to release a test version, I guess this test version
is intended, well, for testing. So, if I am told what especially needs
testing, maybe I can do a thing or two.
