m4 has been updated to version 1.4.2

NEWS
====
This release patches a security hole in m4 1.4: the maketemp macro now 
creates the temporary file, rather than just returning an unused filename. 
Additionally, the documentation has been moved to the /usr/share/info directory.

DESCRIPTION
===========
m4 is an implementation of the traditional Unix macro processor. It is 
mostly SVR4 compatible although it has some extensions (for example, 
handling more than 9 positional parameters to macros). GNU m4 also has 
built-in functions for including files, running shell commands, doing 
arithmetic, etc.

UPDATE
======
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
'm4' from the 'Interpreters' category.

DOWNLOAD:
=========
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, please choose the one nearest
to you: http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html

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