Re: Latest Cygwin Release 5 month old...

The last release of Cygwin was 1.5.19-4 on 2006-01-20, so unless you
have a time machine, a fix made on 2006-05-17 will not be included.
Besides, using the latest snapshot should always be the first thing you
try when encountering a problem before reporting it to the list. Nobody
cares about hearing about bugs that have already been fixed.
Nobody like to hear "oh, it's fixed in the latest build, but
not in the released product."
If a developer doesn't think it is good enough to release,
then I'm not sure I want to be testing on my "production" machine.
Not everyone has a spare test machine.
