A new version of the stunnel package is available in the Cygwin
distribution.  This is a minor bug fix release from upstream.

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.

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.
