Thanks for making every new GCC version available
so soon. Great job!

Just one marketing observation: the Zip picker selects
by default the ancient Windows 95, which gives the
probably undesired impression that DJGPP is close to
obsoletion. But I guess that is still not the case, right?

Yes, thank you!! It is also great, that fortran95 compiler is ported!



I also think so.
Now many DOSes (FreeDOS, DrDOS, Datalight DOS) support also LFN, i
think, DOS should be standard again!

Good catch. I moved the default to 2k/XP. The default reflects the
most popular, not the most desired, and XP wins with 61% of the
submittals:

1 os=dosemu
2 os=win3x
3 os=winNT
13 os=unix
19 os=winME
34 os=dos
35 os=win98
65 os=win95
269 os=winXP

Hi!

Yes, but it is difficult to change manuelly to WinXP for the user.
I think it would be nicer to change it to DOS. (I am an old/young DOS
fan :-)

Does that selection change the default distro to 2.04 beta or does it
pick from stable 2.03p2 current?

We're still picking 2.03 there.

Thanks for the statistics. I would have bet
that XP is the most popular "DOS" around.
One simply cannot beat the combination of
a console window doing DJGPP in combination
with all the amenities of a modern OS - unless
DOS specific features and compatibility are
desired.

In my case it is just number crunching and
my GUI is called "Courier New". If I wanted
to wait for MingW to get their GCC 4.0 ready,
I'd have to wait forever. Therefore - applause
again to the DJGPP team!

V2.03 current should work well under Win 2k/XP. If there are any specfic
problems, ask (there shoud be simple workarounds). We are working on
getting V2.04 released, but it's not quite ready yet.

I think Andris deserves special credit for his efforts in the GCC 4 port.

His sustained efforts over the last few releases to keep GCC current
under DJGPP get an extra special kudos.

I'd like to publicly thank him for his effort on a job well done.

But take care with it as it is very little (almost not at all) tested for
DJGPP. C and C++ is much more tested.

Also not very much testing done with DJGPP v2.03 build, as I'm no more
using it for my own programs. I don't expect serious problems though. As
result build from beta/v2gnu is really now more tested.
