The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* fontconfig-2.11.94-1
* fontconfig-doc-2.11.94-1
* libfontconfig1-2.11.94-1
* libfontconfig-common-2.11.94-1
* libfontconfig-devel-2.11.94-1
* mingw64-i686-fontconfig-2.11.94-1
* mingw64-x86_64-fontconfig-2.11.94-1
* dejavu-fonts-2.35-2

Fontconfig is a library designed to provide system-wide font configuration, 
customization and application access.

This is an update to the latest upstream release with the following 
packaging changes:

* A perpetual postinstall script is now included for managing the fontconfig 
cache; future releases of font packages will not need their own postinstall 
scripts, thereby removing the circular dependency on fontconfig.  As a result,
the 'fontconfig' package itself will only be required for running the 
fc-* commands manually.

* dejavu-fonts is pulled in as a default font so that client applications 
run properly when no specific font is otherwise required.
