Is it possible that you are mistaken here? The Cygwin I am using has a GCC 3.3 and 3.4 is also available as an option. I don't want to convince you to use Cygwin it is just that free software programmers tent to get rather impolite when their software gets blamed for problems that aren't there. There is a lot to complain about in Cygwin, just check a few of my recent post on the GNUstep mailing list, but an outdated tools chain isnt one of them.

Please remember that false claims always reflect back on the rest of your posting.


WebObjects 4.0/Windows was based on what was a recent Cygwin at the time -- that was in late 1996.

NeXT/Apple appeared to do little work, if any, updating the Cygwin/gcc elements distributed with WebObjects on Windows, and that's why the WebObjects 4.5.1 systems I was working on last week and will be working on again next week have are based on a Cygwin and gcc from sometime around 1997.
