[ANNOUNCEMENT] gdbm 1.18.1-1

The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* gdbm-1.18.1-1
* libgdbm4-1.13-1
* libgdbm6-1.18.1-1
* libgdbm_compat4-1.18.1-1
* libgdbm-devel-1.18.1-1

GNU dbm is a library of database functions that use extensible hashing 
and work similar to the standard UNIX dbm. These routines are provided 
to a programmer needing to create and manipulate a hashed database. The 
library provides primitives for storing key/data pairs, searching and 
retrieving the data by its key and deleting a key along with its data. 
It also support sequential iteration over all key/data pairs in a 

This is an update to the latest upstream release, which includes an ABI 
version bump to the main library.  For the benefit of existing packages, 
the latest version of the ABI 4 library has also been uploaded.

The gdbm_compat library, which provides traditional dbm* APIs, has been 
split out from the main library.  (Dependencies of the perl and python 
packages which consume it have been updated on sourceware.)  The compat 
headers are now installed in /usr/include/gdbm to avoid collisions with 
a future inclusion of these APIs in Cygwin itself.
