Updated: swig-1.3.13-1

I've updated the version of SWIG to 1.3.13-1. Tarballs should
be available at a Cygwin mirror near you shortly.

As per the SWIG web page (http://www.swig.org):

  SWIG (Simplified Wrapper Interface Generator) is a software
  development tool that connects programs written in C, C++,
  and Objective-C with a variety of high-level programming
  languages. SWIG is primarily used with common scripting
  languages such as Perl, Python, Tcl/Tk, Ruby, Guile and
  MzScheme, however the list of supported languages also
  includes non-scripting languages such as Java and Eiffel.
  SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level interpreted
  programming environments and as a tool for building user
  interfaces. SWIG may be freely used, distributed, and
  modified for commercial and noncommercial use.

Version 1.3.13 is a regular development release of SWIG. More
information, including release notes and user documentation,
can be found in the directory /usr/doc/swig-1.3.13/.

Updated: db-2.7.7-4

The previous release contained shared memory symbols, which 
hasn't been implemented in the main-stream Cygwin dll yet. 
Thanks to Steve O'Brien for catching this.  This release has 
been tested thoroughly and will resolve the undefined 
symbols issue he previously reported.  If you were having 
trouble compiling an application with db support, please try 
again with this new release.

Description:

Gerrit Haase and I will be submitting various versions of 
the Berkeley DB for inclusion into the cygwin distribution. 
  We begin with the Berkeley DB2, which is the first major 
revision of the original Berkeley DB.  The version of db-2 
is 2.7.7, which is the last stable version released for the 
db-2 line.  There are many projects which can use the db-2, 
one such project being xemacs.  Our intent is to provide the
standard database api's in the same manner as redhat does. 
The releases will co-exist with each other, though the last 
installed release will be the default.  More information on 
this will be included in the db-3.1 announcement.  For more 
information on The Berkeley DB, visit
http://www.sleepycat.com

Cheers,
Nicholas

Updated: cygwin-1.3.12-1

I've made a new version of the Cygwin DLL and associated utilities
available for download.  As usual, a list of what has changed is below.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

Note that we do not allow downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka
cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.  You might have to wait as much
as 24 hours to find a mirror with the updated version of cygwin on it.
Be patient.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin <at> cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.  This includes ideas and comments about the
setup utility or Cygwin in general.

Updated: OpenSSH-3.4p1-2

I've updated the version of OpenSSH to 3.4p1-2.

This is a Cygwin bug fix and enhancement release.

It fixes a bug in the official sources which prevents serverside
port forwarding of privileged ports (ports < 1024).

The enhancements are 

- This version is statically linked against the tcp wrappers lib.

  You don't need to install the tcp_wrappers package to get that
  functionality but I suggest to do so anyway to get the man pages
  describing the functionality and how to create correct
  /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny files.  Note that everything
  works as before if neither of these files exist.

  And note that using that feature only works correctly since
  Cygwin 1.3.12.  Previous versions of the Cygwin DLL had a bug
  which prevents the tcp wrappers lib to return correct results
  when used by sshd.

- The ssh-host-config file now prepares your system for running
  with privilege separation if it's a NT/2k/XP system.

  On NT systems the script now asks if it should create an account
  named 'sshd' in the local NT user database (SAM).  It also adds
  this account to /etc/passwd then.  /var/empty is installed and
  chown'd to SYSTEM.  See /usr/doc/openssh/README.privsep for a
  description of privilege separation.

Updated: binutils-20020630-1

I've made a new version of binutils available for download.  This is

several problems which deal with auto import.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

Updated: binutils-20020706-1

I've made a new version of binutils available for download.  This is
an update release based on the latest FSF release from CVS.  The primary
reason for this release is to rectify a problem that is manifested by
an unfortunate interaction between gcc-2.95.3-5 and the previous
release of binutils.

In the previous release, I'd increased the default alignment to
accommodate java.  That worked fine with gcc 3.1 (which I hope to
release soon) but it failed with gcc 2.95.3-5.

So, for now, I have reverted this change.  I hope to revisit it soon,
since it would be nice to have a version of binutils which works
correctly with gcc 2.95.3 and 3.1.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

Updated: binutils-20020706-2 (fastcall support)

I've made a new version of binutils available for download.  The only
changes in this release are the inclusion of some patches from Eric Kohl
which are meant to accommodate fastcall support in gcc 3.1.1.  In my
very simple tests, this functionality now appears to work correctly.
YMMV.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

Cygwin DLL updated to 1.3.12-2 a few days ago

I put a new version of 1.3.12 up last Friday.

It was built with the new version of gcc which correctly aligns
structures (meaning that /proc/uptime and /proc/stat should now work)
and has some minor fixes to some socket code from Corinna as well as a
change to path scanning to avoid checking for .exe files more than once.

Usual advice, caveats, and musings apply.
