Unfortunately I haven't tried 2.8 because we've already validated 2.7 internally and I would need at least 3 months to access to 2.8.

That said I searched for a release note with information about cygpath, but I haven't find any.


Bottom Post in this mailing list. Please.
$ Is this a question? What do you please me for?

Cygpath is part of the cygwin package.
The source specific of "cygpath" is unchanged by ~ 6 months. The issue you see was likely a change inside the cygwin dll.
$ Yes it is exactly what I was arguing because even if I change `cygpath.exe` for the oldest version, the issue is still the same


About your internal validation, please note that the numbering scheme was changed with version 2.0
$ Which internal validation? Are you talking about `cygpath`?

https://sourceware.org/ml/cygwin-announce/2015-04/msg00046.html

I suggest you to consider 2.x version as the successor of 1.7.x.
$ I am considering 2.7 instead of 2.1 What are you talking about 1.7?

Regards
Marco

$ By the way I still don't know how to answer/reply a message from this mailing list. I have to do polling over https://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2017-05/ and copy/paste everything into a new e-mail. I doubt this is the correct way to communicate. Do you have a clue?
