[Please note that the package naming has changed to facilitate the main
development trunk and a back-port branch for version 1.x.x, and to
differentiate release versions from beta versions etc. when
Announcing two new releases of pthreads-w32:-
Packages are available in self-unpacking zip files (.exe) and gzipped
tar files (.tar.gz) as usual.

This release represents an ABI change and the DLL version naming has
incremented from 1 to 2, e.g. pthreadVC2.dll.
Version 1.4.0 back-ports the new functionality included in this
release. Please distribute DLLs built from that version with updates
to applications built on pthreads-win32 version 1.x.x.
The package naming has changed, replacing the snapshot date with
the version number + descriptive information. E.g. this
release is "pthreads-w32-2-0-0-release".

on adding alertable async cancellation.
