Hi folks,

A new version of Setup, release 2.867, has been uploaded to

  https://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe     (32 bit version)
  https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe  (64 bit version)

The changes compared to 2.864 are mostly not visible:

- There's one fix to the output when mistyping a command line option.

- More importantly, Setup now understands SHA512 checksums additionally
  to MD5 checksums.  We're going to switch to using SHA512 checksums in
  the setup.ini files in a couple of weeks and this requires all of you
  to use the newer Setup version.

Please send bug reports, as usual, to the public mailing list
cygwin AT cygwin DOT com.

Have fun,

Corinna Vinschen                  Please, send mails regarding Cygwin to
