New versions of cyrus-sasl and related packages are available.
The previous 2.1.25-1 package included an ABI change from upstream
without updating the DLL names. This can cause problems with other
packages that were compiled against the earlier version of
cyrus-sasl (e.g., exim or openldap).
Users of those packages should downgrade their libsasl2 package to
2.1.23-1 to avoid any problems.
This update includes a new libsasl2_3 package that can be installed
in parallel with the older libsasl2 package.
* Switch to version-less .cygport file
* Remove Cygwin README.
* Auto-generate hints.
* Run test suite.
* Update to db-4.8.
* The ABI changed, so include a libsasl2_3 package that can be
installed in parallel with the older libsasl2 package. The
plug-ins for the new package are stored in /usr/lib/sasl2_3.
