> The main purpose of this update is to allow Cygwin to run correctly
> on Windows 2008 Server. A change in the exception handling in
> Windows 2008 Server requires to change the exception handling in the
> Cygwin DLL as well, otherwise an exception in a Cygwin process
> results in an endless loop in the OS, taking 100% CPU.
> [...]
> Baring any solution for the exception handling problem in Windows
> 2008 Server from Microsoft which would allow to revert to the old
> behaviour, and if we find nothing else serious in this test release,
> I plan to make this the official release end of next week.
> [...]
> - Change exception handling to run under Windows 2008 Server.
> - Fix a crash when creating stackdumps on Windows XP x64 Edition and
> Windows 2003 Server x64 Edition.

By the way: the official name is "Windows Server 2008/2003", not 
"Windows 2008 Server"...
