	The very latest version/release of libstdc++ is available from the mingw project files page as part of the 
binary archive distribution gcc-2.95.3-20010828.tar.gz:

		Mingw Files

			The latest stable version (binaries) is at gcc-2.95.3-20010828.tar.gz

			The source code is there as well.

	gcc-2.95.2 for Mingw has been deprecated.  Mumits' site is mostly maintained for legacy purposes anymore 
and no longer is being used by the Mingw development community  (see the Mingw Home Page) except as a legacy 
resource.  If Mumit is watching, I am sure he will clarify if he needs to.
