I've made a new version of the gdb debugger available for installation.
This version is a refresh from the CVS repository on sources.redhat.com.
The package also contains the "insight" graphical debugger.

Note that building insight for cygwin from source with the current
version of w32api (3.1) package requires a much-discussed patch in the
insight mailing list or it requires using the CVS sources of w32api.
Please don't ask me where to get the patch and don't spam the insight or
cygwin mailing lists asking for it.  Just check the insight mailing list
archives at sourceware.org.

FWIW, I've asked the w32api maintainer for a new release but, so far,
there has been no indication when one will be forthcoming.

Unlike most cygwin packages, my preference is that bug reports for the
insight debugger, and the tcl/tck packages that insight relies on,
should go to the insight mailing list at sourceware.org (the host of the
cygwin list and cygwin web site).  If you do send a problem relating to
those packages to the cygwin mailing list, expect to be redirected

Remember that to start the insight debugger, you type "insight".  Typing
"gdb" just brings up the command line debugger.
