This is the initial release of The Sleepycat Berkeley DataBase v4.2

The package is split into three parts:

1. `db' package contains the documentation.
2. `libdb4.2' package contains the runtime libraries.
3. `libdb4.2-devel' package contains import libraries and headers as
   well as the utility executables (db_dump, db_load, ...).

Generic information:

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up
'db', 'libdb4.2-devel' or 'libdb4.2' from the 'Database' category,
click on the 'skip' field next to 'db', 'libdb4.2-devel' or
'libdb4.2' until '4.2.52-1' is displayed.

Different versions of DB may be installed at the same time using
setup.exe, however the symlinks needed to link against libdb will be
removed by the postinstall script and the last installed libdb-devel
package will be the one found by the linker when using -ldb on the
link line.
