This email is to inform you about the release of the updated libwin32 
perl package for the current perl-5.8.6 through http://cygwin.com/setup.exe.

The changes in this release are as follows:
* perl-Win32-GUI was taken out to a seperate package.
* Win32CORE is in perl core now.
* Installed into /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8/
* Maintainer changed from Rafael Kitover to Reini Urban.
* Added Win32::Process::GetCurrentProcessID(),
   Win32::Process::CygwinToWin32ProcessID($pid) and
* Minor patches to improve APINet/t/test.t and fix pm_to_blib.ts issues.

Release focus:
* Make it work under current perl-5.8.6

Project description:
A collection of Win32 Perl extensions, collected by ActiveState when
had the patch pumpkin (around 2002), but never maintained it since
then, until recently.

Included modules: Win32API::File, Win32API::Net, Win32API::Registry,
Win32::ChangeNotify, Win32::Clipboard, Win32::Console, Win32::Event, 
Win32::EventLog, Win32::File, Win32::FileSecurity,
Win32::IPC, Win32::Internet, Win32::Job, Win32::Mutex, Win32::NetAdmin, 
Win32::NetResource, Win32::ODBC, Win32::OLE, Win32::PerfLib, 
Win32::Pipe, Win32::Process, Win32::Registry, Win32::Semaphore, 
Win32::Service, Win32::Shortcut, Win32::Sound, Win32::TieRegistry and 

Note: On CPAN there is a newer libwin32-0.24 release which has less 
patches and cygwin enhancements than this package.
It merely collided with the overlong review period of 
perl-libwin32-0.191-4. Of course an update for libwin32-0.24 is in the 
works, but this time with official sanctus upstream. Discussion happens 
in the fresh libwin32@perl.org list. The old ActiveState list dead.
