We are pleased to announce this new release of mingw-get. Formally identified as release 0.6.0-beta-20130904-1, this is the first formal release to provide both CLI and GUI clients, together with the integrated mingw-get-setup.exe first-time installation assistant.
To obtain and install, or upgrade to, this mingw-get release, download and execute the current issue of mingw-get-setup.exe.
Although still formally identified as "beta", this software is believed to be predominantly of release quality; the "beta" classification is retained, pending the eventual inclusion of an integrated GUI "help" facility, the provision of support for dynamic settings adjustment, and the resolution of a few known corner-case bugs.
I have just released the long awaited 4.0 versions of the mingw
runtime and Windows API. For a list of changes please see
