I've updated the version of the cygwin DLL in cygwin/latest to 1.1.4.

A partial list of what has changed is below.  If anyone who has
submitted changes that are not mentioned below wants to chime in, please
feel free.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin web page.  This downloads setup.exe
to your system.

Run setup and answer all of the questions.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
choose a mirror site for your download.  The 'sources.redhat.com' site
is badly overloaded.  The mirrors below have the latest version of this

ftp://ftp.sunsite.utk.edu/pub/cygwin/ (US)
ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/gnu/cygwin/ (Austria)
http://programming.ccp14.ac.uk/ftp-mirror/programming/cygwin/pub/cygwin/ (UK)

Note that if this is the first time that you've run the new GUI version
of setup, it will currently download the whole cygwin net release again.
After this point it will only download what is needed.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at:  cygwin@sources.redhat.com .  I would appreciate
if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
This includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin
in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
