[cdt-dev] Full GDB Console / GDB's new-ui on Windows

Hello cdt-devers,

CDT 9.2 included the great new feature of a full GDB console[1]. At
the moment the limitation is this works for Linux and GDB 7.12+ only.

At various points over the last few months there has been discussion
about supporting this on Windows. Has anyone made any progress with
this? Is there a bug to track it? The most current information I can
find is[2]:

Before I spend additional time on this I wanted to make sure no one
had hit a dead end in this area.
