You can say the same thing about all systems. "People are encouraged to
upgrade their Linux/AIX/... installation." Admittedly, with Cygwin you
probably don't need to support the releases of the last 10 years, as we do
with Solaris and Linux. (Because Cygwin features an installer with easy
upgrades, and upgrading doesn't require repartitioning, rebooting etc.) But
supporting a Cygwin from ca. 2 years ago is better than not supporting it - it
will save bug reports.
