The releases are tagged for my benefit when I make a release.  I make no
effort to ensure that any tag you see in CVS actually reflects the same
numbered cygwin release.  Also, since newlib and other components aren't
tagged, it isn't possible to recreate a release exactly.

As has been frequently mentioned, with a couple of very minor
exceptions, cygwin releases are always backwards compatible.  So, 1.3.18
DLLs should be able to handle executables built with 1.1.1.
