This version of the mingw-get command-line installer and installation management program corrects corrects a critical defect, whereby mingw-get could select the wrong package when searching for a match to a short form package name alias.

Includes the latest version of mingw-get (0.2-alpha-1) and a more recent snapshot of the package manifest data (2011 Mar 16). This snapshot of the catalogue corrects a long-standing inconsistency in the dependency specification for the msys-gettext package, as well.
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.
