Well, not exactly.  CVS has both a "stable" and a "feature" branch.

Stable release 1.11.23 is the most recent, but feature release 1.12.13, 
while about 3 years older, has several features that never made it into 
'stable'.  Cygwin-32bit used to have the latter, but it was, well, 
'side-graded' to the former because of a problem discussed in the 
above-mentioned email thread.
