cURL has been updated to version 7.9.6-1.

There are a couple of enhancements (primarily in libcurl), as well 
as several bugfixes in this version.

Complete release announcements with details are on the curl website:    


To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the 
http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to 
your system. Then, run setup and answer all questions. 

Note that downloads are not allowed from sources.redhat.com (a.k.a. 
cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need to 
find a mirror which has this update. 

In the US, mirrors.rcn.net is already up-to-date. This is a reliable and 
high-bandwidth mirror site. 

Anywhere else, please select something appropriate from the list of mirror 
sites included with setup.exe. If your choice doesn't have the latest 
version of this package, you can either wait for the site to be updated or 
select another mirror. 

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin mailing 
list: <cygwin@cygwin.com>.  I would appreciate if you would use this 
mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes ideas and 
comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general. 

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