Right, but see below for cygwin-3.2.0-0.1.

You can install cygwin-3.2.0-0.1 in the usual way, through Cygwin's setup
program. Since it's a test release, you'll have to explicitly select that
release; setup won't just offer it to you.

I'm still in the middle of some things on that branch, and I haven't had much
time to work on it recently. I hope to get back to it very soon. In order to
build it, you need to add -D__WITH_AF_UNIX to CXXFLAGS. In order to test it,
#define AF_UNIX 31
after including <sys/socket.h>
