Version 2.00-1 of nasm has been uploaded, and should be available on  
the cygwin mirrors in the near future.  Please find it under the  
"Devel" category in cygwin's setup utility.

This release constitutes a major revision of the upstream stable  
sources.  From http://nasm.sf.net/ :

> After 7 months of intense development, the NASM team brings you  
> NASM 2.0!!! This version of NASM supercedes version 0.98.39 (and  
> Apple's 0.98.40) and introduces full 64-bit (x86-64/x64/AMD64/Intel  
> 64) architecture and object file support. We have also addressed  
> quite a few bugs and feature requests along the way.

Special note:

I have removed support for the GNUWin32 COFF format ("-f gnuwin32"  
option).  This format was introduced to work around historical  
disagreements between MinGW interpretation, Microsoft implementation,  
and the COFF/PE specifications of the VirtualSize field for .bss  
section headers.  These have been (reportedly) resolved in binutils  
since 2003.  Please use "-f win32" now in contexts where "-f  
gnuwin32" was used.

If you get link errors, such as "ld: PE operations on non PE file",  
when linking nasm objects produced with "nasm -f win32", and you are  
using the latest version of Cygwin's binutils, please send a report  
to the cygwin mailing list.

In general, questions, comments, and reports should go to the cygwin  
mailing list: cygwin@cygwin.com
