[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: cpio-2.6-1

I've just updated the version of cpio to 2.6-1.

This is an official upstream release.  The Cygwin version has two
minor tweaks.  The package now contains also the rmt tool, which
is entirely untested.  cpio passes all (two) tests in the testsuite.

What's new in 2.6?

* Added NLS support

* Improved configure script

* Improved invocation consistency checking and help output

* Printing warning about truncation of inode numbers is suppressed by
default. See below.

* New option --warning (-W) controls the level of output warnings:

    -Wnone       Disables all warnings
    -Wtruncate   Enable warning about truncation of the inode number
    -Wall        Enables all warnings

  To disable a particular warning, prefix its name with 'no-', just
  like in gcc.

* New option --to-stdout extracts files to standard output.

* The output of `cpio --help' is largely improved.

* Bugfixes:
** If a file grew n bytes in copy-pass mode, these n bytes got prepended
to the contents of all subsequent files.
** Padding the archive with zero bytes upon truncation of the file being
archived was broken.

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.
