I have just released cygport-0.11.0 for the Cygwin distribution and the 
Fedora Cygwin repository.  New features in this release:

* Vastly improved dependency detection (works only on Cygwin):
- commands called by unindented fully-qualified path in 
postinstall/preremove scripts
- script interpreters called via shebang
- DLLs corresponding to import libraries
- Link libraries listed in .la libtool libraries
- Link libraries listed in pkg-config Libs: and Libs.private: fields
- Other pkg-config modules listed in pkg-config Requires: and 
Requires.private: fields
- GObject Introspection module and DLL dependencies
- Java jar dependencies (via java-jdepend)
- OCaml dependencies on other OCaml libraries (via ocaml-findlib) and 
native-code link libraries required by .cmxa files
- Perl, PHP, PyPy, Python, Ruby, and Tcl module dependencies
- Third-party Vala API module dependencies

* Automatic setup.hint generation.  This allows a .cygport file to be a 
completely self-contained, single-file packaging solution.  The 
[PKG_]CATEGORY (for category:), [PKG_]SUMMARY (for sdesc:), and 
[PKG_]DESCRIPTION (for ldesc:) variables (as documented in the manual) 
must be defined in order to activate this feature.  The requires: line 
is written automatically (but may be added to via [PKG_]REQUIRES) and 
displayed at the end of the packaging stage for verification; 
inter-subpackage dependencies are also detected.  Handwritten setup.hint 
files still work as before, and override automatic generation.

* New cygclasses: pypy, pypy-distutils, rubygem, sugar.

* .gem files are unpacked with gem(1) (integrated in ruby-1.9.x) and the 
.gemspec file is recreated in order to be patchable.  Sugar Activity 
bundles (.xo) are now supported.
