UnZip is an open-source, command-line alternative to other zip-format
archives such as WinZip, etc.  unzip-5.52 is the latest release from
Info-Zip, http://www.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/UnZip.html. unzip-6.0
is still in beta.

This is a security update.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

This will be one of the last releases of unzip for the cygwin-1.5
distribution, but not THE last.  Once unzip-6.0 is out of beta,
I will release a cygwin build of that version for cygwin-1.5. However,
most future development will continue with unzip-5.52-10 (and
unzip-6.0-10) for cygwin-1.7.

CHANGES (since 5.52-2)
o Bring in debian patch 5.52-12
  - fixes CAN-2005-2475
  - fixes CVE-2005-4667
  - fixes CVE-2008-0888
o Enable -W and -B options (see man page)
o Enable large file support. But, be warned, this is still
  quite limited in unzip-5.52. "Real" large file support is
  forthcoming in unzip-6.0 (currently in beta).
