A new release of findutils, 4.6.0-1, will soon be available on your
favorite mirror as the current version, leaving 4.5.12-1 as previous.
This is a new upstream release. See /usr/share/doc/findutils/ for
documentation of what has changed.
The findutils package contains programs which will help you locate files
on your system. The find utility searches through a hierarchy of
directories looking for files which match a certain set of criteria
(such as a filename pattern). The xargs utility builds and executes
command lines from standard input arguments (usually lists of file names
generated by the find command). The locate utility scans a database of
filenames and displays matches. The updatedb utility builds the
database for locate.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up
'findutils' from the 'Base' category (it should already be selected).
Note that downloads from sourceware.org (aka cygwin.com) aren't allowed
due to bandwidth limitations. This means that you will need to find a
mirror which has this update, please choose the one nearest to you:
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
