[1.7] Updated: cygwin-1.7.0-64
Tue Nov 10 13:22:00 GMT 2009
I just uploaded a new Cygwin 1.7 test release, 1.7.0-64.
Changes in relation to 1.7.0-63:
- Just as Linux doesn't find "foo.so" when calling dlopen("foo"),
Cygwin's dlopen will not find "foo.dll" anymore.
- Fix a regression in cygserver which made it non-functional.
- Fix a build problem which results in cygpath being linked against
- Try to make installation path and mount point recognition in cygcheck
output more reliable.
- Fix a regression in /usr/include/ctype.h which results in compile time
problems when using assignments inside of ctype macros.
- Don't attach .exe suffix when renaming Win32 binary files with certain
suffixes. This is work-in-progess-as-we-go-along.
- In case the user has no right to read a file's security descriptor,
set stat's st_mode to have no "other" permission bits. This is
supposed to reflect the most probable permissions on this file for the
- Don't create ESC sequences for ALT-key keypresses if key translates
into a multibyte sequence. This avoids stray bytes in input when
pressing for instance ALT-ö (Umlaut-o) under UTF-8.
- Fix reparse point handling to recognize volume mount points
(junctions) more reliably.
- Fix rename(2) so that it will return with errno set to EBUSY instead
of EXDEV when trying to rename volume mount points. EBUSY is what
Linux returns when trying to rename a mount point, so that's
semantically more correct. Returning EXDEV results in mv(1) trying to
copy over the contents of the source drive to a new directory on the
target drive (cross-device move). Uh oh.
- Q: How do I know that I'm running Cygwin 1.7.0-64?
A: The `uname -v' command prints "2009-11-10 13:03"
