The changes in this release are as follows:

0.27 6 March 2007

   Identical to 0.26, except that the Win32 and the
   Win32API::File modules have been removed.
   These modules are core Perl modules and are
   only available individually from CPAN.

Project description:
A useful bundle of Win32 Perl extensions.

Included modules: Win32API::File, Win32API::Net, Win32API::Registry,
Win32::ChangeNotify, Win32::Clipboard, Win32::Console, Win32::Event,
Win32::EventLog, Win32::File, Win32::FileSecurity,
Win32::IPC, Win32::Internet, Win32::Job, Win32::Mutex, Win32::NetAdmin,
Win32::NetResource, Win32::ODBC, Win32::OLE, Win32::PerfLib,
Win32::Pipe, Win32::Process, Win32::Registry, Win32::Semaphore,
Win32::Service, Win32::Shortcut, Win32::Sound, Win32::TieRegistry and

There's some tiny bit missing in the Cygwin README, which will be in the next README.

If you want to build from source, this build links against the unixodbc package, the default Win32::ODBC against the Microsoft ODBC headers and libs. There's no difference at run-time though.

tar xfz libiodbc-3.52.5.tar.gz
cd libiodbc-3.52.5
./configure --disable-gui --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
make check
make install

libwin32 builds with the MSVC6 ODBC headers also, but we (Gerrit and me) wanted to link against an open and POSIX compliant lib.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
