Sorry, no, 4.1.1-1 was compiled with 1.3.22. I wanted to get in a round
of testing 4.1.1 with the older Cygwin libs before migrating my system to
1.5 and rebuilding there. 4.1.1 really should be stable, but still,
extra testing is always a plus. If this doesn't fit in with how you'd
like 'test versions' to be done right now (and I certainly understand you
wantint to keep things consistent here), then please make 4.1.1-1 the
'current version' and 4.0.7-1 the 'previous version' and remove any
references to 'test version'. I've updated the setup.hint to remove all
version information, so if you simply get a fresh copy of setup.hint from
the above weblink, then normal building of setup.ini should make 4.1.1-1
and 4.0.7-1 the curr and prev respectively. The older setup.hint, which
has version info in it, has been renamed setup.hint-4.1.1.
I've been holding off migrating to 1.5 because of work related issues,
and because I need to resolve dependent packages for zsh that are also
built under 1.5. 4.1.1 has some new build dependencies and I think some
of those packages aren't built with 1.5 yet.
One question I have concerning building under 1.5: is it's possible to
have two separate Cygwin environments on the same machine? Installing
into two different directories is doable, but the current way of storing
mount information in the registry doesn't really allow for this. So, how
does one have both a usable stable and test environment? I'm guessing it
can't really be done (at least not easily).
