Re: When will GCC 3 ship with Cygwin?

That Sandia page deprecates only gcc-3.0 and 3.01, not the current
releases, and appears to have little to do with cygwin. Even the mpi lam
pages would give you more current information about gcc versions for mpi
on linux, if that's your concern. Many linux users have moved beyond
2.95 already. Certainly, it's a big step from 2.95.x to 3.x.x for
people who care about details of the C++ libraries, but I don't see any
problem for the mpi applications I'm dealing with on Windows or linux in
moving to current releases when the system maintainers are ready. I see
more incentive to move to gcc-3.1, but I won't argue that it's time to
do so now.
I don't see that the proposal to drop support for gcc versions using
coff is aimed directly at cygwin, nor do I see how it should affect our
attitude about which gcc version to prefer.
