cURL has been updated to version 7.9.8-1.

Along with a number of bugfixes, this release includes these changes:

 o curl_formadd() can do file upload parts from buffer
 o libcurl can be built with specific protocols disabled
 o should build nicely with modified OpenSSL 0.9.7 API
 o win32 timers now use higher resolution
 o CURLOPT_CAPATH was added (--capath on the command line)
 o CURLOPT_NETRC now supports optional or required netrc mode
 o curl_formadd() now returns a CURLFORMcode type, not a plain int.

The original (more detailed) release announcement can be found on the curl 
web site:  http://curl.haxx.se/mail/archive-2002-06/0056.html


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. Then, run setup and answer all questions. 

Note that downloads are not allowed from sources.redhat.com (a.k.a. 
cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need to 
find a mirror which has this update. 

Not all mirrors will have been updated at the time this announcement is 
made. If your usual mirror doesn't have the latest version of this package, 
you can either wait for the site to be updated or select another mirror.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin mailing 
list: <cygwin@cygwin.com>. 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.
