The most recent cygwin sources are available at the snapshots page.

You realize that you are not talking about cygwin, right?  The objdump
sources are not maintained by the cygwin group but they are a part of
the binutils package which is available via sourceware and, guess what,
there is web-based CVS access for them.

If you are referring to the binutils package that comes with cygwin,
then, yes, that is out-of-date.  So, you should just grab the most
current version from .
