I have just released cygport-0.14.0 for the Cygwin distributions and the
Fedora Cygwin repository.  Notable changes in this release include:

* Creates .tar.xz packages (adds a runtime dep on xz).

* Per request, generated packages are now placed solely under the 
NAME-VERSION-RELEASE/dist/ hierarchy, and no longer in the "top" directory.

* Consequently, the 'all' command no longer includes 'finish' (now aka 
'clean'), as no packages would be left as a result, and 'almostall' is 
deprecated, as it is now identical to 'all'.

* The setup.hint skip: tag is used for source-only packages when 
autogenerating setup.hint files.

* qt3 and qt4 link libraries are (as of today's releases) now in 
/usr/lib instead of /usr/lib/qt[N]/lib; this release reflects and 
requires those changes.

* New qt5 and qt5-qmake cygclasses for Qt5 packages.
