GCC-2.95 for Cygwin b20.1+ (i586-cygwin32) -- Release information

Release date: July 31, 1999.

I'm pleased to announce prebuilt gcc-2.95 packages for Cygwin B20.x 
(i586-cygwin32). This package is meant to replace the b20.1 compiler, 
so the pathnames are compatible with b20.1. This has only been tested 
with Cygwin B20.1, and will NOT work previous releases such as Cygwin 

What are the various packages?
  gcc-2.95: GNU Compilers for C, C++, ObjC, F77 plus the the respective 
    runtime libraries. The Java compiler is a separate optional package.

  gcc-2.95-java: Java compiler. The runtime is not included here. See
    GCC web site (See the "LINKS" section for UR) for more info.
  gcc-2.95-mingw-extra: Contains the libraries and includes to build 
    Mingw binaries with Cygwin. See my gnu-win32 web site for more

  gcc-2.95-info-docs: Provides the documentation in GNU info format.
  gcc-2.95-html-docs: Provides the documentation in HTML format.

  gcc-2.95-dev-ss: Provides runtime library replacements for those 
    using Cygwin post-b20.1 development snapshots.

What's not in this package?
  libg++: Sorry, I stopped distributing libg++ a while back. If you
    need it, see the gcc-2.95 FAQ (see the "LINKS" section for URL) and 
    build it yourself.
