Is this the right place to suggest that gdb be upgraded for cygwin. If
not where could I suggest that? If this is an acceptable place then
can I add here that if you guys do upgrade gdb that I was hoping you
could make it a bit more detailed maybe make it to show a bit more
information about crashes. An example is that I m working with a
linked list and when the program crashes gdb prints out and only
prints out the words below this text. I am left clueless about the error.

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.

new version of gdb.

Incidentally, I just resigned as the gdb maintainer for Windows.

Anyone else want to take on the mantle?

Alright if I download and compile it can I just mv gdb.exe into /bin and overwrite gdb.exe?
