A new version of the stunnel package is available in the Cygwin
distribution.  stunnel is a program that allows you to encrypt arbitrary
TCP connections inside SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).  stunnel can allow
you to secure non-SSL aware daemons and protocols (like POP, IMAP, LDAP,
etc) by having stunnel provide the encryption, requiring no changes to
the daemon's code.

Changes in version 4.21-1:
* New upstream release, with bug fixes and some new features.  See
/usr/share/doc/stunnel-4.21/ChangeLog for a list.

Please note that, although libstunnel (i.e. cygstunnel.dll) is included
in this package, its use is undocumented AFAICT and so I haven't tried
to test it.  I guess that its purpose is to provide transparent proxy
support via stunnel by something like LD_PRELOAD=libstunnel.dll, but I
don't really know how or if it works.  Test reports are welcome on the
cygwin list, but questions and discussion might better be directed to
the stunnel-users list.
