This arrived yesterday.

Just wanted to know a rough timeframe and what you plan to do with the DLL name, so that I can coordinate libwin32 and the Win32::GUI upgrades.
I want to seperate Win32::GUI from libwin32, and I want to contact Rafael.

I want to change the name to cygperl_5_8.dll. Timeframe: depends on the results of the testsuite, if all or most tests are passnig then I think it can be uploaded the next days.

Be better to use 3 numbers still but use PERL_API_{REVI,VER,SUBVER}SION
instead of  PERL_{REVI,VER,SUBVER}SION.  (See patchlevel.h.)  Unless there's
a length problem, maybe also append archname ("cygwin-thread-multi-64int").

It should work for internal version checks and where else it is used as is, however the DLL naming for perl is hardcoded in the wrapper perlld. So actually it is only the DLL name that changes to enable the use of older extensions without recompiling easily.
