I've made a new version of gdb available for download.  This version is
a refresh from the last version of gdb which was released in April of
2001.  It has a lot of bug fixes and probably some new bugs.

I've made this available because, while the insight support is not quite
right, gcc has been evolving and needs a debugger to keep pace with it.
So, you can consider the 'gdb' command-line part of the package to be
up-to-date but the 'insight' version is experimental.

Recent changes in gdb-land make 'gdb' and 'insight' into two separate
commands.  (I'm saying this now even though I know that there will still
be questions about this) Typing 'gdb' gives you the command line
debugger which should work fine.  Typing 'insight' will give you the GUI
debugger which is a tad bit flaky.  Some people are claiming to use
insight with few problems.  YMMV.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.  gdb is located
in the "Devel" category.  Click on this category to install gdb if it is not
already installed.  If gdb is installed, it will be updated automatically.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.
