The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* bzip2-1.0.6-3

bzip2 is a freely available, patent free, high-quality data compressor. It

techniques, whilst being around twice as fast at compression and six times 
faster at decompression.

This release includes a fix for CVE-2016-3189.
