The jpeg package has been updated to version 6b-8.  This IS NOT a 64bit, 
cygwin-1.5.0 test release.  It is a cygwin-1.3.22 release; upgrade now. 
  However, the upcoming 64bit release will have a DLL with a new name, 
because it uses libtool to build.  Therefore, the purpose of this 
release is to split the package into two:

   jpeg-6b-8      - contains everything but the DLL
   libjpeg6b-6b-8 - contains only the DLL

This is the ONLY change between 6b-7 and 6b-8

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

Run setup and answer all of the questions.  Note that you can
no longer download directly from sources.redhat.com; use a
mirror.  The mirrors below have the latest version of this

ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/pub/sourceware/cygwin/ (US)
ftp://linux.sarang.net/mirror/development/compiler/cygwin/ (Korea)
ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/cygwin (UK)

The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and should install the jpeg package automatically.

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 general.

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

o The semi-official 'lossless jpeg' patch is included in this build, and
is distributed as part of the source archive (see below). The lossless
jpeg patch is NOT related to the "new" JPEG2000 specification.
JPEG2000 is NOT supported by this package.
