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 web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
