[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: setup (2.878)

A new version of Setup, release 2.878, has been uploaded to     (32 bit version)  (64 bit version)

Changes compared to 2.877:

- "Direct Connection" now uses the WinINet API to fetch URLs.

This enables HTTPS and FTPS protocol support, and caching of mirrors.lst and setup.ini.

The existing, hand-built URL fetching, which only supports HTTP and FTP, is still available by choosing "Direct (legacy)".

- Fixes to "Use Internet Explorer Proxy Settings" mode

Progress is now reported for downloads.

Unwanted caching in "Temporary Internet Files" of package archives has been fixed.

A bug causing a long delay before downloading setup.ini from package repositories without a compressed setup.ini has been fixed.

- Add --allow-unsupported-windows option

Don't check the windows version.

The Cygwin mirror list is not read, so a URL (e.g. a Cygwin time machine circa) should be given with --site or via the GUI.

- Remove support for some long-obsolete setup.ini syntax (omitted version:, omitted size and checksum, various undocumented tokens)

- Remove cruft

Please send bug reports, as usual, to the public mailing list cygwin AT
cygwin DOT com.
