Did the cygwin project not bump an api version number somewhere?

you can run uname -r to see the version number.

I myself haven't fully understood all the consequences,
somewhere between 1.7.7 and 1.7.17 the include files had been changed.

If this has consequences for using e.g. winsock2.dll, I want to know myself ;-)


uname -r gives the version of the dll, not of any particular package, and all of the various components are versioned independently. The win32api is spread across several packages, and the recent update changed the names, There is no api number advertised. You could check the names of currently installed packages if you assume those names won't change, but any such method is going to be fragile (and very unsupported).
