Updated: naim-0.11.6.5-1

naim 0.11.6.5 is now available through the Cygwin Net Release.

naim is a console client for AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, Internet Relay
Chat, and The lily CMC. Development work is done on Linux, but naim should
work on any system with an ANSI C compiler, BSD sockets, and ncurses. This
includes operating systems such as BeOS, FreeBSD, Mac OS 10, NetBSD, and
Microsoft Windows using Cygwin. naim has been in development since October,
1998. More information is available from:
	http://naim.n.ml.org/

| To install or upgrade this package, run the Cygwin Net Release Setup     |
| Program, available from [http://cygwin.com/setup.exe]. Answer all of the |

Updated: rsync-2.6.0-1


I have uploaded version 2.6.0-1 of the open source utility that provides
fast incremental file transfer.
It needed no patch at all.
See website for the many changes: http://rsync.samba.org/

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at:  cygwin <at> cygwin.com .  I would appreciate if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.

Updated: ssmtp-2.60.4-2

I have updated the version of ssmtp to 2.60.4-2.

The only change is to fix a bug with ssmtp-created dates, used in
Received: headers and sometimes in Date: headers.

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.
The ssmtp package is in the Mail category.

ssmtp is an extremely simple sendmail replacement, which forwards messages
to a mailhub (e.g., your ISP's outgoing mail server), and does nothing
else.

Please read /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/ssmtp-2.60.4.README for configuration
information.

New package: help2man-1.33.1-1


GNU help2man is now available with the Cygwin net distribution:

~  * http://www.gnu.org/software/help2man/   (canonical homepage)
~  * ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/help2man/         (canonical download)

help2man is a perl script that generates man pages based on the output
of a program's --help and --version options.

This is a build requirement for the gtypist package, and is generally
used by many programs for making their man pages.  It can also be run
manually and has a number of command line options.  For example, the
following will generate a man page for tar (which doesn't have its own):

$ help2man /usr/bin/tar -s 1 -S FSF -o /usr/share/man/man1/tar.1

Please note that due to some Linux-specific code in the NLS component
and a dependency on a Perl module, this package was configured with a
--disable-nls flag.  If we manage to get this working a new release will
be posted.

New package: gtypist-2.7-1


GNU Typist is now available with the Cygwin distribution:

~  * http://www.gnu.org/software/gtypist/        (GNU homepage)
~  * http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/gtypist/   (development pages)
~  * ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gtypist/              (canonical download)

GNU Typist is an interactive typing tutor that can help you to type
correctly. It has several lessons for different keyboard layouts and in
different languages. The lessons for gtypist are described in a
easy-to-learn scripting language that the user can use to modify the
existing lessons or create new ones.

This package includes typefortune and an emacs major-mode, which are
used to edit and create new gtypist lessons.  These require perl and
emacs if you wish to use them.  Otherwise, they are not needed for
running gtypist itself.

Updated: xemacs-21.4.14-2/xemacs-tags-21.4.14-2/xemacs-emacs-common-21.4.14-2

Hi

A new version of 'xemacs' has been uploaded to a server near you.

DESCRIPTION:
============
A powerful, highly customizable open source text editor and application 
development system

CYGWIN NEWS:
============

* Build with cygwin-1.5.7

* Removed --with-dragndrop from configure line

  This option prevented some W32 processes (notibly Opera/IE/Netscape) from exiting
  when XEmacs was still running

* Workaround for the warning message

    "Couldn't find an obvious default for the root of the
     XEmacs hierarchy."

  at Xemacs startup. Obviously it *finds* all of its files

* Added a copy of sample.init.el,a sample XEmacs initialization script, to
  /usr/share/doc/xemacs-21.4.14
  See the comments at the start of the file for more information

Updated: gd-2.0.21-1/libgd2-2.0.21-1/libgd-devel-2.0.21-1

Hi

A new version of 'gd/libgd2/libgd-devel' has been uploaded to a server near you.

DESCRIPTION:
============
A graphics library for fast image creation

CYGWIN NEWS:
============

* Build with cygwin-1.5.7

* Routine upgrade to 2.0.21

gd NEWS
=======

What's new in version 2.0.21?

    * Version 2.0.21 adds a gdImageCreateFrom*Ptr family of functions which make it convenient to load an
image in any GD-supported format directly from memory.
    * The new gdNewDynamicCtxEx function was added to support the easy implementation of the above functions
and to correct a design problem which made life unpleasant for those passing in memory not originally
allocated by gd to the gdNewDynamicCtx function by provoding a way to specify that gd should never free or
reallocate a particular block of memory. The gdNewDynamicCtx function and its relatives, although
still exported for ABI compatibility, are now deprecated except for internal use, in favor of
gdImageCreateFromPngPtr and its relatives.
    * Version 2.0.21 includes a new patch from Ethan A. Merritt to correct a bug in the conditional compilation
of support for symbol fonts in gdft.c. Symbol fonts should now work correctly. Thanks to Mr. Merritt.

Updated: cygutils-1.2.4-1

cygutils and cygipc have some incompatibilities with cygwin-1.5.7; this 
updated version resolves those conflicts.  Note that you will probably 
need to re-install cygwin-1.5.7 after upgrading cygutils -- this is an 
unfortunate consequence of the pre-existing conflict between 
cygutils-[OLDVERSION] cygwin-1.5.6+.

For more information, see the companion announcement for cygipc-2.03-2.

Updated: cygipc-2.03-2

cygipc and cygutils have some incompatibilities with cygwin-1.5.7; this 
updated version resolves those conflicts.  Note that you will probably 
need to re-install cygwin-1.5.7 after upgrading cygipc -- this is an 
unfortunate consequence of the pre-existing conflict between 
cygipc-[OLDVERSION] and cygwin-1.5.6+.

A list of the specific changes ( for both cygipc-2.03-2 and 
cygutils-1.2.4-1 ) appears below.

This is, in all likelihood, the LAST release of cygipc.  The cygserver 
implementation now shipped with cygwin-1.5.7 and later is a much better, 
and better-supported, implementation; all existing packages which rely 
on cygipc should begin transitioning to cygserver.  For package 
maintainers and developers, this will probably boil down to, in most 
case, simply: (a) recompiling, (b) installing and running the cygserver 
daemon, (c) changing documentation, and (d) getting used to answering 
new questions from your users about "what happened to cygipc" <g>

====

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: you will need to run setup TWICE.  First, update/install 
cygipc-2.03-1 and cygutils-1.2.4-1.  Let setup run to completion.  Then, 
run setup AGAIN -- and this time, choose "reinstall" for cygwin-1.5.7 
(or whatever is your current version of the cygwin package).
