    Release Notes: This release works much better on Vista and Windows 7. It has improvements in international character set handling. It handles path names longer than 260 characters. It has support for IPv6. It allows multiple Cygwin installations to exist on the same machine. It breaks backwards compatibility with some older applications. It no longer works on Windows 9x class systems.
