[ANNOUNCEMENT] New package: ioperm-0.3-1

New Cygwin package ioperm-0.3-1 is available for download.  This 
software adds support for ioperm()/iopl() functions to Cygwin.  This 
support includes sys/io.h and sys/perm.h header files (not included in 
Cygwin by default) together with development and runtime libraries.

=============================== Warning ===============================
Warning:   Current release of ioperm may decrease your system security 
on Windows NT/2000/XP because enables access to system I/O ports for 
all processes, including non-privileged.  If you are not sure, please 
do not use ioperm on Windows NT/2000/XP.

To install the package, 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.  You'll find ioperm 
listed in the "Devel", "Libs" and "System" categories.

After package installation ioperm.sys driver activation is required for 
Windows NT/2000/XP.  Use `ioperm -i` command to activate the driver. 
Driver deactivation is available through `ioperm -u` command.  See 
enclosed documentation for more info.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin 
mailing list at: with "ioperm" word in a message 
subject.  I would appreciate it if you would use this mailing list 
rather than emailing me directly.
