Well, it's already "official" in that it's been on all the cygwin
mirrors for quite some time. But it's marked as a test version so you
don't get it by default. I think the initial reason was that it
contained patches that had not been fully tested yet and with a package
like bash you don't want to release untested code until you're sure it's
However, that was in November, so it's been a good 5 months or so in
that state. Another issue here is that the current bash maintainer is
very busy and has limited access to a Windows machine. There has been
talk of another person volunteering to step in and get version 3
packaged and released, but so far nothing has come of it.
