Dear Cygwin team,

there have been recently some substantial changes to pkg-config, notably the package mingw64-i686-pkg-config seems to have been replaced by pkg-config-1.6.0-1 (the mingw variant is now just a shell script).

I wonder where this has been announced and where I can find the release documentation for the related packages. It would be great if the release notes would be accessible via the package page, e.g.

Best regards,
