Vendor patches for 5.10.1-2:
* CYG11 Empty .bs files are not generated anymore
* CYG12 no archlib in otherlibdirs
* CYG14 Dynaloader
* CYG15 static-Win32CORE
* CYG17 utf8-paths
* CYG21 LibList-Kid.patch
* CYG22 cygwin-1.7 hints
* CYG23 544-stat
* CYG24 build man pages
* CYG26 Cwd for svk
* Bug#55162 File::Spec::case_tolerant performance
* disable ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Coverage in Sys-Syslog

The patch "CYG25 use same image-base when exchanging privlib dlls" was reverted as it was too fragile. This means that updating core modules into arch might still require a rebaseall, esp. the Compress::Raw modules.

Update recommendations from 5.8: -------------------------------

Since 5.10 is not installed in parallel to 5.8 (it is possible, but not
with this package), all your old 5.8 modules will need to be reinstalled
for 5.10.
Your old 5.8 modules are not deleted, just not accessible to 5.10.
Non-binary packages can be used by adding /usr/lib/perl5/site_lib/5.8 to
your @INC, but the below procedure is recommended to get the latest
version for each installed package.
This will not harm most of your previous 5.8 modules in case you want to
switch back to 5.8, just the /bin scripts might get overwritten.

# get the list of installed 5.8 modules
$ perl -MExtUtils::Installed \
  -e'print join("\n", new ExtUtils::Installed->modules)' > module.list

# install all previous modules for 5.10
$ cpan `cat module.list`


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.
