  A new release of gcc, version 3.4.4-3, has been uploaded to sourceware.org,
and will appear on your local mirror after it next refreshes.

  This is a full "current version" release and supersedes the formerly
experimental -2 package.  It fixes two specs-handling errors that were
introduced in the -2 package, causing failures of debugging information and
arc profiling.  It also works around the g77 library installation bug that
first showed up in -2.  With these fixes, there are no regressions relative to
the original -1 release of the gcc-3.4.4 series.

  Thanks to everyone who tested and reported both problems and successes with
the experimental version, and to Angelo Graziosi in particular for his help.

OBTAINING THE RELEASE
=====================

  To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the
http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.  Then,
run setup.exe, fill in all of the options, and make appropriate choices on the
"Select Packages" screen.  Because this is a full "current" version release,
any gcc packages you currently have installed will be automatically selected
to update, but you'll need to select the Devel category to see gcc and friends
if you don't have them already installed.


NEWS
====

>From the README:

---------- version 3.4.4-3 -----------

2006-09-25

	* Promoted experimental release to current.
	* Implemented workaround for g77 library installation bug
	(PR17725/PR17726/PR21792).


---------- version 3.4.4-2 -----------

2006-07-20

        * Experimental release of gcc-3.4.4-2 to fix PR24196,
          which has been causing problems passing std::string
          instances to dlls.  Implemented the patch by Paolo
          Carlini rather than using --enable-fully-dynamic-string.
        * Restored and updated GNU Pascal, but highly experimental
          and not seriously tested yet.
        * Updated build script, but one problem remains: /usr/src
          must be mounted in managed mode when setup.exe is used
          to install the sources, or they must be copied from
          there to a managed directory before building.


    cheers,
