sorry for bothering you.
Firstly, do not send me personal email.
Please read http://cygwin.com/problems.html#personal-email, particularly
the section starting "Shouldn't I just send email to straight to a
Cygwin developer or package maintainer?"
- Is there a simple way from command line
to get the version number od setup_x86.exe,
like -V or -version?
In setup.log there is a version number, but
I want to avoid the GUI.
A patch to add such an option would be useful.
- The setup version shown in
seems to be a bit newer than of the ones to be downloaded at
These are release candidate versions.
- Is there a way to find out the setup versions on https://cygwin.com/
before downloading them?
You can search the cygwin-announce mailing list archive for the most
recent setup announcement?
