  That's 4.3.2-1, no?  I've been using nothing but 4.3.2-2 for a while now.
The problems are known, and none of them affect the Cygwin DLL:

- redirected gfortran IO when using libgfortran DLL
- shared lib java completely borked
- libstdc++ dll operators new/delete not replaceable.

  I'll have 4.3.3-1 out shortly.  Java will revert to static linking only, for
the moment, but I know what the problem is and how to fix it.  Libstdc++ is
taken care of.  The fortran IO problem I have debugged and solved, but it
needs to be fixed in the cygwin DLL - it's an order-of-termination problem,
that I'll post about on the -dev list shortly.  It should be the best one yet
and as near as dammit what I'd call production-ready.

  Hopefully I'll also be able to get most of my patches upstream in time for
4.5.0; libstdc++ will be the first priority there.
