Great :)

Ehm.. no?
If you want to grumble, you should have said something like "these 
features are already available in the current snapshot" in your 
pre-announcement. In that case, I would have tried a snapshot a while ago. 
I took your pre-announcement to mean that it was the next available 
version except if a checkout of CVS was done - something I didn't want to 
do unless I really had to..

In that case, advertise them a bit more ;)

The new feature came as a complete surprise to me as I'm not on
cygwin-developers and apparently no longer on cygwin-cvs (since
2003-06-21, don't know why though - one of your every-once-in-a-while
cleanups perhaps?). I took your pre-announcement to mean that it would not
be available in snapshots before the test release (as in that case I would
have expected a "please try a snapshot" message) so I didn't try them.

Ah well.. 

Perhaps, next time, you could be a bit more specific and I could try 
snapshots a bit more often, eh?
