A new release of findutils, 4.2.27-1, is available for use, replacing
4.2.25-2.

NEWS:
=====
This is a new, stable upstream release.  This release was previously
available as a test version, but now that cygwin-1.5.19-2 is out, I have
moved it to current.

Upstream news since 4.2.25 is attached; see also
/usr/share/doc/findutils-4.2.27/.

Upstream findutils-4.3.0 has also been released as an unstable development
version; I will be packaging that soon as an experimental cygwin release.

DESCRIPTION:
============
The findutils package contains programs which will help you locate files
on your system.  The find utility searches through a hierarchy of
directories looking for files which match a certain set of criteria (such
as a filename pattern).  The xargs utility builds and executes command
lines from standard input arguments (usually lists of file names generated
by the find command).  The locate utility scans a database of filenames
and displays matches.  The updatedb utility builds the database for locate.

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 'findutils' from
the 'Base' category (it should already be selected).

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.
