New upstream release of librsync, including a security fix. Note
that the ABI for the librsync has changed, so the package now
provides librsync2.

Cygwin packaging changes:
 * Main package renamed from rdiff to librsync.

librsync is a free software library that implements the rsync
remote-delta algorithm. This algorithm allows efficient remote
updates of a file, without requiring the old and new versions to
both be present at the sending end. The library uses a "streaming"
design similar to that of zlib with the aim of allowing it to be
embedded into many different applications.

rdiff is a utility included with librsync to compute and apply
signature-based file differences.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
