I agree, but the official 5.0.3 Cygwin distribution included a
non-functional Nviz and thanks to Glynn, we have a functional one. So it
seems fair to include it.
Regarding 5.3, I do have a good recent Cygwin binary distribution at
greenwoodmap.com/grass and whenever Markus begins distributing 5.3
binaries from grass.itc.it then I hope he will copy it there. (I am not
trying to become a Grass mirror or distribution point, it's just easy
for me to put things on my site).
Regarding 5.7 on Cygwin, neither Nviz or v.digit are currently working.
I haven't tested it much. But I do have a binary distribution at
Regarding promoting the use of 5.3, I think distributing binaries would
be a good first step. The web statistics that Markus sited earlier this
week did not include any 5.3 binary downloads because none are available
from http://grass.itc.it/download.html :)
