This thread asks for testers. I've read the

https://cygwin.com/faq.html#faq.setup.snapshots

without finding a way to run the test release other than simply replacing the cygwin1.dll with the snapshot one. It seems to run fine, I've deployed to one of the Jenkins build agents some hours ago.

My question: Is a "test" version of the setup program with an updated setup.ini available somewhere?


It can be installed by the standard setup,
just select 2.11.2-0.1 from the available versions of
cygwin package.

The new setup show better the test versions available.

Thank you, I simply did not notice the "Test" check-box in the upper right corner (available even in 2.893).
Perhaps that should be added to the FAQ?
The current guide seems a bit out-of-date (replacing the dll after unpack and rename)

It seems that I can push a patch / suggestion here? https://cygwin.com/git/gitweb.cgi?p=cygwin-htdocs.git
