[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: libfakesu 1.1.0

This library simulates the Unix root user. It is meant to make porting
Unix programs to Cygwin easier. Many Unix daemon programs, such as
Apache, Sendmail and Procmail, start up as root but change to an
unprivileged user ID.
By including this library, any Cygwin super-user (member of the
'Administrators' group) will be represented with user id '0' to
your program.

Version 1.1.0
* added the following functions:
  chown, fchown, lchown
  getpwnam_r, getgrgid_r, getgrnam_r, getgrgid_r
  setfsuid, setfsgid
