I've just updated the version of SWI-Prolog to 5.6.36-1.

This is the long overdue update to the latest stable upstream release.
The Cygwin version has a few minor patches which I will send upstream.

The differences between the former 5.2.6 version are too numerous to be
listed here.  From the Cygwin perspective the two major differences are
that SWI-Prolog has now been build with shared libs, and that a couple
of the dynamically loadable packages have been build and packed as well:

  clib, http, jasmine, nlp, semweb, ssl, table and zlib.

Unfortunately xpce and sgml don't build on Cygwin right now, but I'm
working on it for a later release.

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.
