New package: slrn-0.9.9p1-1

Hi,
slrn ('S-Lang read news') is now available for cygwin.
The version 0.9.9p1-1 has been uploaded.

DESCRIPTION
slrn ('S-Lang read news') is a newsreader, i.e. a program that accesses
a newsserver to read messages from the Internet News service (also
known as 'Usenet'). It runs in console mode. Beside the usual features
of a newsreader slrn supports scoring rules to highlight, sort or kill
articles based on information from their header. It is highly customizable,
allows free key-bindings and can easily be extended using the sophisticated
S-Lang macro language. Offline reading is possible by using either
slrnpull (shipped with slrn) or a local newsserver (like leafnode or INN).

openssl-devel packages.

This is an upstream security release.  The Cygwin release is build from
the vanilla sources, no additional patches.

Official release message:
=======================================================================
   OpenSSL version 0.9.8p released
   ===============================

Updated: cygport-0.10.2-1

The following package has been updated for the Cygwin distribution:

*** cygport-0.10.2-1

This release includes two notable enhancements:

* GNOME 2.32 readiness
Automatic postinstall commands were added or updated for GdkPixbuf
loaders, GIO backends, GSettings schemas, and GTK+ 3.0 immodules.

* Python 3 distutils support
There are now separate python-distutils and python3-distutils
cygclasses.  distutils.cygclass remains as a wrapper for API
compatibility, defaulting to the Python2 version in most instances.  A
new distutils-multi.cygclass was added to support building modules for
both 2.x and 3.x from the same source tarball (when the code supports
both).  Please see the documentation for details.

Other improvements include:

* All manpages with double-colon are renamed for man(1) compatibility.
* Postinstall scripts can be included in multiple subpackages.
* ant.cygclass: accepts ANT_TEST_ARGS and ANT_INSTALL_WRAPPERS.
* kde4.cygclass: updated SRC_URI for kdepim 4.4 releases.
* xorg.cygclass: fixed URIs for xproxymanagementprotocol.
