I've made a new version of the Cygwin DLL and associated utilities
available for download.  This is a pure bug fix release.  It also
enables basic operations on Windows Vista 64.


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.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list.  See http://cygwin.com/lists.html for details.
