This is the first series of the 5.x releases, and should be considered
as experimental as such.
Have you managed to work around the ABI change in gcc-5 , or will
this require a mass rebuild at the point gcc-5 becomes 'current'?
As far as I know, every gcc release will break C++ ABI, so it would mean
rebuilding everything C++.
According to the Red Hat blog above, the last time g++ caused an ABI
change was back in the 3.x days, so it hasn't happened for a while. Ah
well, we have maintainers for most packages in Cygwin, so we'll have to
co-ordinate a rebuild.
