Hi

New versions of 'libwmf/libwmf027/libwmf-devel/libwmf-doc/gdk-pixbuf2-wmf' have been 
uploaded to a server near you.


Cygwin NEWS:
============

 o Maintainer change
 o Switched to cygport build framework
 o Package split in main, library, devel, doc and gdk-pixbuf2-wmf package

NOTE: Due to the monolithic nature of Gerrit's old package the
      setup.hint file of the following package has been updated:

   libMagick10         libwmf -> libwmf027


DESCRIPTION:
============
libwmf is a library for reading vector images in Microsoft's native
Windows Metafile Format (WMF) and for either (a) displaying them in,
e.g., an X window; or (b) converting them to more standard/open file
formats such as, e.g., the W3C's XML-based Scaleable Vector Graphic
(SVG) format. Currently bindings exist for conversion to vector image
formats EPS, PS, FIG, SVG, and raster image formats PNG and JPEG.


UPDATE:
=======
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 and pick up 'libwmf' from
the 'Libs' category (it should already be selected).

DOWNLOAD:
=========
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
