UnZip is an open-source, command-line alternative to other zip-format

Info-Zip, http://www.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/UnZip.html.

CHANGES (from unzip-5.50-5)

* version number is 5.52-2 so as to supersede both the unofficial
   cygwin-ports 5.52-1, and the cygwin test release 5.52-1.
   + cygwin-ports version is missing many of the cygwin specific patches
     found in the official test release 5.52-1, and the earlier 5.50-x
     series of official releases.
   + This version, 5.52-2, includes the cygport build recipe work from
     cygwin-ports, but also the cygwin-specific patches from earlier
     official cygwin unzip packages.
