[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: cygwin-1.5.25-11

I've put Cygwin 1.5.25-11 out of test.  This is now the new release

Changes since version 1.5.25-7:

- The main purpose of this release is to allow Cygwin to run correctly
  on Windows 2008 Server.  A change in the exception handling in Windows
  2008 Server requires to change the exception handling in the Cygwin
  DLL as well, otherwise an exception in a Cygwin process results in an
  endless loop in the OS, taking 100% CPU.  The problem has been
  confirmed upstream to be a missing check in one of the OS DLLs.
  The exception handling in Cygwin has been changed to allow working
  on 2008 Server as well.

- Fix a crash when creating stackdumps on Windows XP x64 Edition and
  Windows 2003 Server x64 Edition.

- Fix pthread_kill to deal with signal 0 as per POSIX.

- Fix ambiguity in thread signal mask handling.

- Try harder to make a pipe into a full-cygwin device.

- Fix non-POSIX handling of ungetc buffer in ftell and fflush.

- Fix strtod to handle incomplete hex strings and "nan()" correctly.

- Trying to create a non-existant file with open("foo/") does not create
  a file "foo" anymore, rather it fails now with EISDIR as on Linux.

- Fix testing for Samba shares to use more reliable test available with
  new and upcoming versions of Samba (3.0.28a, 3.2.0).

- Allow cygcheck to run on Windows 9x again.

'cygwin' in the 'Base' category (it should already be selected).
