The following packages have been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

GNU Wget is a file retrieval utility which can use the HTTP, HTTPS, or
FTP protocols. Wget features include the ability to work in the
background while you're logged out, recursive retrieval of directories,
file name wildcard matching, remote file timestamp storage and
comparison, use of Rest with FTP servers and Range with HTTP servers to
retrieve files over slow or unstable connections, support for Proxy
servers, and configurability.

This will be the last release of wget, unless more high priority
patches are required.
