The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* libpopt0-1.16-2
* libpopt-common-1.16-2
* libpopt-devel-1.16-2

The popt library exists essentially for parsing command line options. Some 
specific advantages of popt are no global variables (allowing multiple 
passes in parsing argv), parsing an arbitrary array of argv-style elements 
(allowing parsing of command-line-strings from any source), a standard 
method of option aliasing, ability to exec external option filters, and 
automatic generation of help and usage messages.

This release adds the patchset from Fedora, and resolved the packaging 
discrepencies between 32-bit and 64-bit.
