expat-1.95.7-1 has been uploaded to the Cygwin net distribution.

Expat is an XML parser library written in C.

It is a stream-oriented parser in which an application registers 
handlers for things the parser might find in the XML document 
(like start tags).  Homepage: http://www.libexpat.org/

CHANGES (since expat-1.95.6):

- Fixed enum XML_Status issue (reported on SourceForge many times), so
   compilers that are properly picky will be happy.
- Introduced an XMLCALL macro to control the calling convention used by
   the Expat API; this macro should be used to annotate prototypes and
   definitions of callback implementations in code compiled with a
   calling convention other than the default convention for the host
- Improved ability to build without the configure-generated
   expat_config.h header. This is useful for applications which embed
   Expat rather than linking in the library.
- Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues 458907, 609603, 676844,
   679754, 692878, 692964, 695401, 699323, 699487, 820946.
- Improved hash table lookups.


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.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up `expat' from the `Libs' category.

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

In the US, ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Japan, ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/gnu/gnu-win32/ is updated fast.

In Denmark, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is usually up-to-date.

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