This one has new features (compared to setup-2.340.2.5.exe) that I like;
it keeps _almost_ all settings as they were at the last run. i.e. less
clicking - real nice.
*minor* hitches remaining:
- "Create Icon on Desktop" stays set *unconditionally*
unlike "Add Icon To Startup menu"
- Regeneration of MD5-sums every time "Install from internet" is
(Can't these be saved in a time-stamped file?
Then timestamps compared to the download directory timestamp?
Resetting the file timestamp to the directory's after re-genration.)
- No GUI resize (Yes I know, a major rewrite)
And NO, I *won't* subscribe to cygwin-apps at this time.
