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 :)
