This is the initial release of The Berkeley DataBase v2.

Gerrit Haase and I will be submitting various versions of the Berkeley
DB for inclusion into the cygwin distribution.  We begin with the
Berkeley DB2, which is the first major revision of the original Berkeley
DB.  The version of db-2 is 2.7.7, which is the last stable version
released for the db-2 line.  There are many projects which can use the
db-2, one such project being xemacs.  Our intent is to provide the
standard database api's in the same manner as redhat does.  The releases
will co-exist with each other, though the last installed release will be 
the default.  More information on this will be included in the db-3.1 
announcement.  Fort more information on The Berkeley DB, visit 


To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

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

In the US,
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Germany,
is usually pretty good.

In the UK,
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
then you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another

The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and will install newer packages automatically.

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