I've moved all of the gcc stuff out of "test" and into "current".

So the default gcc compiler for cygwin is now gcc 3.2.  If you want to
use gcc 2.95, install the gcc2 package.  This will produce a 'gcc-2'
executable with similar functionality to the old gcc.

The gcc-mingw piece is now required if you want to use gcc's '-mno-cygwin'
option.  It should be selected automatically if you select gcc.

gcc 3.2-1 contains gcj which various people have reported as being either
functional or broken.  I'll probably strip it out of future releases and
offer it separately.

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, fill in all of the options, and make appropriate
choices on the "Select Packages" screen.  You'll need to select the Devel
category to see gcc and friends.

Note that we do not allow downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka
cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.  You might have to wait as much
as 24 hours to find a mirror with the updated version of cygwin on it.
Be patient.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin

use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
