[ANNOUNCEMENT] [Fwd: Updated: mingw-runtime-2.4-1]

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

This release among other things adds a _CRTIMP modifier to the import 
declarations.  It's default definition is set to nothing.  It will be 
set to __declspec(dllimport) if you -D__USE_CRTIMP which will provide a 
slight speed improvement to your process but will cause multiply defined 
symbols if you provide a local definition of a shared function, for 
example malloc.  The relevant portion of the ChangeLog is attached.


-----Installation Instructions-----
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.

Note that we do not allow downloads from (aka due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US,
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Germany, is
usually pretty good.

In the UK,
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package then
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another mirror.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.
