Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Fwd: Problems installing in Cygwin

I think we have a problem in the "make dist" for the 1.2. I just
downloaded the latest 1.2.8, and the windows timer component header
file is not in the tarball. This file is not automatically generated,
and it is in the svn version.

Anyway, the 1.3 is nearly ready to replace the 1.2 as the stable
version. And it does have this file, so I strongly suggest to switch
from the 1.2 to the 1.3 series.
