Graphical Installer Interface -- New Snapshot Available

A new snapshot of the mingw-get graphical user interface is now available from http://tinyurl.com/md6qt8x; this version introduces a preview of the mingw-get-setup.exe tool, which will ultimately supplant mingw-get-inst.exe.

In addition to the introduction of mingw-get-setup.exe, this snapshot includes an experimental adjustment to the download code, (common to both the GUI and CLI clients), which it is hoped may avoid some reported issues, suspected to result from connection throttling, when performing sequential downloads of a number of packages from some SourceForge mirrors.

Installation instructions may be found at http://tinyurl.com/6madwlo,
under the "Using GUI Installer Development Snapshots" subheading.
