What version of cygwin is considered stable on Windows 7?

When considering building a basically "frozen"?version of cygwin - that is to 
say, downloading, configuring, and building a disk image, then turning that disk 
image into a MSI for installation purposes (in an environment where this is 
being done because users will not have?Windows 7 permissions to perform 
additional setup or package manipulations), what version of cygwin should be 
considered stable?for developer use?? The environment expects to use cygwin/x , 
bash, and a variety of commonly used "unix-like" applications (awk, perl, wc, 
cat, make, java, ...).

Certainly each?alpha and beta release contains bug fixes and enhancements that 
might be useful for the developer to have.? However, in at least this shop, 
there isn't enough time?available for software integrators to update?the 
installation image daily and push it out.? Instead, there is typically a?point 
in time in which?a project is created which?draws a line, picks the recommended 
release at that point, bundles things up, and then, in the future as problems or 
features demand, a new project is proposed, scheduled, staffed, and executed for 
creating a new release.

Is cygwin 1.7.6 considered?stable for use on 32 bit Windows 7? Or do we need to 
drop back farther?

Tcl - It's the real thing.
