A new version of the lftp package is available in the Cygwin distribution.
lftp is a sophisticated file transfer program and ftp/http client.  It
supports multiple network protocols, offers tab completion, command history,
job control, and bookmarks, can mirror sites and transfer multiple files in
parallel, and keeps trying interrupted operations until it can complete

Version 3.5.11-2 is a Cygwin bug fix release.  In version 3.5.11-1,

* /etc/lftp.conf was automatically overwritten on installation.
* setup.hint listed incorrect dependencies.

Both of these errors have been fixed in lftp-3.5.11-2.  Unfortunately, if
you installed version 3.5.11-1, any customizations to your /etc/lftp.conf
file were wiped out.  My humblest apologies for that.  Installing 3.5.11-2
won't bring your old lftp.conf back, but it also won't wipe out any further
customizations that you've made since then.
