I have been wondering for some time why Cygwin gcc is still in the 3.4.x
versions while the the current gcc is 4.1.1. The GNU gcc site states that the
3.4.x has been closed with 3.4.6 being the final one. My only guess is that
Cygwin has a very cautious incremental upgrade policy.

Since I would like to move to the gcc-4.1.x branch to keep synchronized with the
Linux distributions, I am curious when the migration to the 4.1.x branch is
anticipated. Will you have to go through the 4.0.x versions first, or can you
jump to a reasonably current version?
