I've updated the version of patch to 2.5.8-8...

...already a few days ago, but I forgot to announce.

It's a bug fix release which should solve problems reading input
files (files to patch) having DOS lineendings.  It should also solve
a potential screwing up file content i --binary mode, if the temp
directory is on another device than the output file.

This patch requires Cygwin 1.5.3 ff.

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.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

If you have general questions or comments, please send them to the
Cygwin mailing list at: "cygwin at cygwin dot com".  I would appreciate
it if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
