I'd appreciate it if people could try the two new setup.exe's
installed at for 32-bit for 64-bit

The setup.ini's for both are updated using a similar schedule to the
"official and soon to be deleted" version which uses
/var/ftp/pub/cygwin/release.  The -x86* versions of these programs
use the release directories from the arch specific locations.

The setup.ini's used by these two new programs are not
backwards-compatible with old setup.exe.

Just to be clear, these new setup.exe's should not do anything untoward
to your existing installation.  They should *just work*.

setup-x86_64.exe behaves differently from setup64.exe with respect to source-only packages. (I don't know which one is "right".) This is showing up for me because the 64-bit versions of gcc and readline are source-only packages that are (incorrectly?) required by other packages. setup64.exe seems to ignore these requirements, whereas setup-x86_64.exe wants to install the packages but then reports "Incomplete download".
