I've just updated the Cygwin 32 and 64 bit version of sed to 4.2.2-2.

This is an update of sed to use the latest regex implementation from
gnulib, thus implementing "rational ranges" for non-C locales per the
gnulib changes from 2012-12-30.

With sed 4.2.2-1 and earlier versions:

  $ LC_COLLATE=en_US.utf8
  $ echo abcdeABCDE | sed -e 's/[B-D]/_/g'

With sed 4.2.2-2 (as on Fedora 18 and similar newer Linux distros):

  $ LC_COLLATE=en_US.utf8
  $ echo abcdeABCDE | sed -e 's/[B-D]/_/g'

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.
