The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* file-5.41-2
* file-devel-5.41-2
* python3-magic-5.41-2

This update rectifies a wrong dependency to python 3.8 in the 32 bit
package and removes the obsolete python2 bindings.


With file you can obtain information on the file type of a specified
file. File type recognition is controlled by the file /usr/share/file/magic
which contains the classification criteria.
