But I personally use msys2 with MinGWx64, with the convenient
pacman package manager, which offers 7.6 as the the latest gdb:
(I sync'ed database an hour ago)
Again, It is highly a matter of taste, I find it convenient and trustworthy,
(rather than having to build gdb from sources and/or download gdb
executables from random websites)
