Hi Cygwin friends and users,

I just released Cygwin 1.7.28-2.  This is 1.7.28 with just two fixes
to header files:

- Include sys/cdefs.h from /usr/include/pwd.h and /usr/include/grp.h,
  fixing http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2014-02/msg00085.html

- Define flock(2) macros and function if BSD-only functions have been
  disabled by settings in the application,
  fixing http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2014-02/msg00093.html

To install 32-bit Cygwin use http://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe
To install 64 bit Cygwin use http://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe

The 64 bit Cygwin distribution doesn't yet come with as many packages
as the 32 bit version, but more packages will be available over time.

If you're already running a 32 bit version of Cygwin on 64 bit Windows
machines, you can continue to do so.  If you're planning a new install
of Cygwin on a 64 bit Windows machine, consider to use the new 64 bit
Cygwin version, unless you need certain packages not yet available in
the 64 bit release.

Have fun,
