New releases of

openblas         (source)
libopenblas      (dinamic library)

are available in the Cygwin distribution, 32 and 64 bit :

CHANGES
New upstream release
https://github.com/xianyi/OpenBLAS/releases/tag/v0.2.14

Added STEAMROLLER 64 bit support

DESCRIPTION
OpenBLAS is an optimized BLAS library based on GotoBLAS2 1.13
BSD version and further extended.
OpenBLAS is licensed under the 3-clause BSD license.

HOMEPAGE
http://www.openblas.net/

CYGWIN NOTES
1) As BLAS it is around 5-10 times faster than Netlib reference,
    included in the liblapack0 package.

2) No devel package is provided as liblapack-devel already provide
    the needed headers and import.
    Openblas is fully compatible with Netlib BLAS.

3) libopenblas consist of a single file
      /usr/bin/cygblas-0.dll
    that will precede in PATH the liblapack0
      /usr/lib/lapack/cygblas-0.dll
    and used instead. Removing libopenblas will restore the
    usage of Netlib BLAS

4) CPU architecture covered up to now

5) Built with a max number of 16 threads; it should be enough
    to fully utilize up a 8 core dual thread.
    The fixed max limit at build time is a upstream limitation,
    if you need more than 16 let me know.
