Updated [test]: coreutils-8.26-2

A new release of coreutils, 8.26-2, has been uploaded, and will be
available soon from your favorite mirror.  The new release is
experimental, and REQUIRES the use of the experimental cygwin-2.7.0-0.1
(or better) release; the current version remains 8.26-1 for
compatibility with the current stable cygwin dll; once the next cygwin
release occurs, I will promote 8.26-2 to current with another
announcement email.

This is a minor rebuild to add 'stty -iutf8' functionality, now that the
experimental cygwin has added this terminal knob.  For upstream details,
see /usr/share/doc/coreutils/NEWS.

If you encounter a regression, please report it here rather than
upstream.  See also the upstream documentation in /usr/share/doc/coreutils/.

GNU coreutils provides a collection of commonly used utilities essential
to a standard POSIX environment.  It comprises the former textutils,
sh-utils, and fileutils packages.  The following executables are included:

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page. This downloads setup.exe to your

'coreutils' from the 'Base' category.

Note that downloads from aren't allowed due to bandwidth
limitations.  This means that you will need to find a mirror which has

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
