Updated: exim-4.31-1

I have updated Exim, the Mail Transfer Agent, to exim-4.31-1.
It is the first stable release since the current 4.30.

This port requires Cygwin 1.5.6 or more recent.

Changes (from the official announcement):
-
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---
This release fixes a number of bugs and also contains some new features. As
usual, all changes are in the ChangeLog file and new features are described
in the NewStuff file. See also the README.UPDATING file for changes that
might impact on some installations. The manual has *not* been updated.
For more information see
  <ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/ChangeLogs/ChangeLog-4.31>

  and /usr/share/doc/exim-4.31/NewStuff

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---

Note:
 If you update from an Exim release earlier than 4.22, it will be necessary
 to delete all files in /var/spool/exim/db. This causes no permanent loss of
 data.

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

Updated: zsh-4.2.0-2

An updated version of zsh (zsh-4.2.0-2) has been released and should be
at a mirror near you real soon.

This release fixes the following:

- Installation related bugs found in 4.2.0-1 postinstall script.  This
  would cause no /etc/zprofile to be copied on a fresh install on a
  virgin machine.

- Fix for running scripts from text-mode mounted filesystems.  Previously
  if you ran a script from a text-mode mount, and it had DOS CR/LF's line
  termination, zsh would report ^M errors.  The shell now opens such
  files with O_TEXT which causes line termination to be massaged.  I'll
  be watching for problem reports concerning this as it was a broad
  change, the implications of which haven't been fully realized yet.

	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.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list (see http://cygwin.com/lists.html).

Updated: cygrunsrv-0.99-1

I have updated cygrunsrv to version 0.99-1.

This version adds a new behaviour and a new option.

When running services interactively (using -i, --interactive option),
usually a console window pops up which has been opened by the service
control manager.  Beginning with version 0.99, cygrunsrv hides that
console window by default.  If you need that console window open, use
the -j or --nohide option.  In that case, cygrunsrv keeps the console
window untouched.

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: inetutils-1.3.2-27

I've updated the version of inetutils to 1.3.2-27.

Changes in 1.3.2-27:

- When starting inetd as NT service with the "Allow service to interact
  with desktop" facility turned on, the console windw which usually
  appeared, is now explicitely hidden by inetd.  No visible console
  window anymore.

=========================================================================
			  IMPORTANT NOTE:

- When updating inetutils, take care that inetd.exe and subsequent
  processes don't run anymore.

=========================================================================

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.

Run setup and answer all of the questions.

Note that if this is the first time that you've run the new GUI version
of setup, it will currently download the whole cygwin net release again.
After this point it will only download what is needed.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin

Updated: cygrunsrv-1.0-1

I have updated cygrunsrv to version 1.0-1.

Was cygrunsrv ripe for a 1.0 version number?  I thought it was after
about three years.

In contrast to previous versions which allowed variables of a length
of up to 255 characters, this version allows to define environment
variables of any size, only constraint by memory limits.

Variable names were also limited to 256 characters so far.  This
restriction has been lifted to allow a size of up to 16K.  This is
the limit of registry value names since Windows XP.  Older Windows
versions nevertheless restrict this length to 260 characters, though.

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.

Updated: OpenSSH-3.8.1p1-1

I've just updated the version of OpenSSH to 3.8.1p1-1.

This is an official new release, based on the vanilla sources.

There's a Cygwin related patch in it, not noted below, which allows
pubkey authentication also on Cygwin systems running with CYGWIN=nontsec.

The official release message as of today:

====================================================================
OpenSSH 3.8.1p1 has just been released. It will be available from
the mirrors listed at http://www.openssh.com/ shortly.

This release is a bug-fix release for the portable version. There are
no feature additions and no corresponding OpenBSD-only release.

OpenSSH is a 100% complete SSH protocol version 1.3, 1.5 and 2.0
implementation and includes sftp client and server support.

We would like to thank the OpenSSH community for their continued
support to the project, especially those who contributed source, help
with testing and have bought T-shirts or posters.

We have a new design of T-shirt available, more info on
        http://www.openbsd.org/tshirts.html#18

Updated: exim-4.32-1

I have updated Exim, the Mail Transfer Agent, to exim-4.32-1.
It is the first stable release since the current 4.31.

News from the official announcement:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---
This release fixes a serious recipient callout caching bug that was introduced
in 4.31. Also, I have reversed the change in 4.31 that caused Exim to use the
real sender when doing recipient callouts (which is where the bug was). The
default behaviour is now what it was in 4.30. However, there is a new option
to request the altered behaviour.

The version of GNU LilyPond is updated to 2.2.0-1.

new setup.exe released

A new setup.exe has been released. Download it from the usual place
(http://www.cygwin.com/setup.exe)

This is a combination bugfix and feature update. The key elements of
interest are a fix for the 'libpcre0 not installed' issue, and the
release of the nascent resizable chooser. 

WARNING: The resizing feature is still rough. Bug reports on this
feature are NOT solicited. Patches are.

Thanks go to the contributors to this release, including:
Frank Richter, Igor Pechtanski, Ralf Habacker, Jerry Hedden, Max Bowsher
and Gary R. Van Sickle.

Cheers,
Rob
