The jbigkit package has been updated to version 2.0-1.  JBIG is
a lossless, bilevel image compression format with better compression
than TIFF-LZW (for bilevel images). It is an 'official' standard image
format -- International Standard ISO/IEC 11544:1993 and ITU-T
Recommendation T.82(1993). (The JBIG group is a sister organization
to the more familiar JPEG group; see http://www.jbig.org/)

This is routine update to latest upstream release.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

This will most likely be the final jbigkit update for the cygwin-1.5
distribution; future development will continue with jbigkit-2.0-10 for

CHANGES (since 1.6-1)
o Update to latest upstream release
  - Adds new bi-level-only library, libjbig85 and jbig85.h
    (cygwin provides this limited library in static form only)
o Update to work with stock cygport-0.4.3
