-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
For those people testing cygwin 1.7, a new release of coreutils, 7.0-2,
has been uploaded, replacing 7.0-1 as current. 6.10-2 remains current
for cygwin 1.5 users.
This is a rebuild with libgmp support enabled, so that expr and factor can
now deal with arbitrarily large numbers. If you encounter a regression,
please report it here rather than upstream. See also the upstream
documentation in /usr/share/doc/coreutils/.
GNU coreutils provides a collection of commonly used utilities essential
to a standard POSIX environment. It comprises the former textutils,
sh-utils, and fileutils packages. The following executables are included:
[ arch base64 basename cat chcon chgrp chmod chown chroot cksum comm cp
csplit cut date dd df dir dircolors dirname du echo env expand expr factor
false fmt fold gkill groups head hostid hostname id install join link ln
logname ls md5sum mkdir mkfifo mknod mktemp mv nice nl nohup od paste
pathchk pinky pr printenv printf ptx pwd readlink rm rmdir runcon seq
sha1sum sha224sum sha256sum sha384sum sha512sum shred shuf sleep sort
split stat stty su sum sync tac tail tee test timeout touch tr true
truncate tsort tty uname unexpand uniq unlink users vdir wc who whoami yes
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, then look for 'coreutils' in
the 'Base' category (it should already be selected).
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:
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
