Hi folks,

I uploaded a new Cygwin release 2.11.0-1.


What's new:

- New APIs: clearenv, pthread_tryjoin_np, pthread_timedjoin_np,

- New APIs: aio_cancel, aio_error, aio_fsync, aio_read, aio_return,
  aio_suspend, aio_write, lio_listio.
  New header: <aio.h>.

What changed:

- SO_RCVTIMEO and SO_SNDTIMEO socket options are now honored.

- /proc/cpuinfo now reports L3 cache size on Intel CPUs.

- Drop denormal-operand exception from FE_ALL_EXCEPT, as on Linux.

- Rename the --file option of setfacl(1) to --set-file, as on Linux.

- Support Unicode 10.

- Following glibc, `union wait' has now been removed.  Applications
  using union wait and these macros will have to migrate to the
  POSIX-specified int status type.
