mingw-get-inst version 20110802 has been released. It includes the
latest version of mingw-get (0.3-alpha-2.1) and a more recent snapshot
of the package manifest data (2011 Aug 02). mingw-get-inst is a
graphical installer that can be used for INITIAL installation of MinGW
compilers and MSYS tools (upgrading an existing installation should be
done using the command line mingw-get tool). In fact, mingw-get-inst is
merely a simple GUI wrapper around the command line tool.
The new version of mingw-get (0.3-alpha-2.1) corrects a critical defect
in the version matching code within mingw-get's dependency resolver,
which resulted in failure of wild card tokens in a requirements
specification to match an actual package version, where that version was
qualified by a release status descriptor, (such as "alpha", "beta",
Therefore, this version of mingw-get is a mandatory prerequisite upgrade
for all users who may wish to install and deploy the upcoming MinGW
GCC-4.6 pre-release packages using mingw-get.
Several other minor bugs were corrected, and small new features were
added, in the mingw-get 0.3-alpha-2 release (2011-06-17) -- but there
never was a mingw-get-inst release which capture that mingw-get (until now).
