Oh no, they did it again! Something similar happened last year. [1]
Let's hope their new URL schema will remain persistent. Arghh. [2]

I fixed that in our development version:

I could run an emergency release that fixes just the download URLs.
But Mingw-cross-env is in a quite stable state, so let's instead
simply bring forward our next regular release:

It's time for a new release!


Please test the current development version on as many systems
as possible. I'll wait for your test results until:

    Monday  (7 June 2010)

If you need more time, just drop me a note.
Template for your reports:

    System:         ...
    NSIS excluded?  no/yes
    Success?        no/yes
    Log file:       -

Thank you in advance!


[1] From the release notes:

    2009-04-06 - Release 2.5

        This release fixes a download error caused by the MinGW project.
        They suddenly changed the names of their source tarballs. That
        sort of thing should never happen!
