B20-built applications do not need to be rebuilt when you upgrade to
20.1.  (In fact, you should be able to rename the B20 (or 20.1)
cygwin1.dll to cygwinb19.dll and continue to use your old Cygwin B19
applications with the new library).

Sergey has been doing us all a big favor by providing builds of the
latest Cygnus development snapshot of Cygwin with the latest bug fixes
to the net, often with additional patches of his own.  Although these
are not official Cygnus releases, they are of use to a lot of people
when serious bugs are fixed in development sources but an updated DLL
from Cygnus hasn't been made available yet (usually because of time

That said, we will be making more updates to B20 with bug fixes
available periodically so I expect it should be practical to stay with
the official releases...
