Hi folks,


I uploaded a new Cygwin test release 2.10.0-0.1

I'm planning for a release end of January.  Please test.

Do we need a new gcc release to go along with the recent ssp changes?

The following commit message seems to answer my question:

commit 3e8fc7d9f21329d5a98ec3cf6de138bce9bc2c05
Author: Yaakov Selkowitz <yselkowi@xxxxxxxxxx>
Date:   Mon Nov 27 23:07:10 2017 -0600

    ssp: add Object Size Checking common code

[...]

    Note that this does require building gcc with --disable-libssp and
    gcc_cv_libc_provides_ssp=yes.


Are there plans to coordinate the release of Cygwin 2.10.0 with a new gcc release? In the meantime, I guess package maintainers have to build with -U_FORTIFY_SOURCE in order to test building with Cygwin 2.10.0. Or am I missing something?

Ken
