Version 2.6.2-3 of the open source utility that provides
fast incremental file transfer has been uploaded.

If you're not sure what version do you have you can use the following
command (if you don't have grep omit the last part):
$ cygcheck -cd | grep rsync
rsync                2.6.2-2

Version 2.6.2-3 is basically the same as 2.6.2-2, but it solves the
textmode issue that did "corrupt" many binary files out there.

Many thanks goes to Sjoerd Mullender for finding (and fixing) the bug

If you're using 2.6.2-1 or earlier version to avoid the textmode bug,
you're now strongly advised to upgrade to 2.6.2-4, as it contains the
patch to fix august's SECURITY ADVISORY as in:
