I have updated cygrunsrv to version 1.0-1.

Was cygrunsrv ripe for a 1.0 version number?  I thought it was after
about three years.

In contrast to previous versions which allowed variables of a length
of up to 255 characters, this version allows to define environment
variables of any size, only constraint by memory limits.

Variable names were also limited to 256 characters so far.  This
restriction has been lifted to allow a size of up to 16K.  This is
the limit of registry value names since Windows XP.  Older Windows
versions nevertheless restrict this length to 260 characters, though.

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.
