New News:
=== ====
I have updated the version of rebase to 2.4.2-1.  The tarballs should be
available on a Cygwin mirror near you shortly.

The only notable change (to rebaseall) since the previous release is:

    * Change zcat to "gzip -d -c" and egrep to "grep -E" to avoid the
      possibility of invoking a (bash) shell script.

Old News:
=== ====
The Cygwin rebase package contains two utilities, rebase and rebaseall.
The first utility is modeled after Microsoft's SDK rebase:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/tools/tools/rebase.asp

The rebaseall utility is a convenient way for users that suffer from the
Cygwin rebase problem to rebase their entire system (i.e., all of their
DLLs).

Please read the README file:

    /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/rebase-2.4.2.README

since it covers requirements, usage, known issues, etc.

I would like to thank Ralf Habacker for providing the imagehelper
library.  This library has enabled me to create a rebase utility that
is usable by all Cygwin user (regardless of platform) on all DLLs
(regardless of stripping).

Standard News:
