The following package has been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* units-2.19-1

The Units program converts quantities expressed in various scales to
their equivalents in other scales. The units program can handle
multiplicative scale changes as well as nonlinear conversions such as
Fahrenheit to Celsius or wire gauge. Units comes with an annotated,
extendable database defining nearly three and a half thousand units.
