The following package has been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* units		2.22

The Units program converts quantities expressed in various scales to
to their equivalents in other scales. The units program can handle
multiplicative scale changes as well as nonlinear conversions such as
Fahrenheit to Celsius or wire gauge. Units comes with an annotated,
extendable database defining nearly four thousand units, including 120
nonlinear units, and 113 prefixes, using ten systems of units including
SI, 175 currencies, plus bitcoin and precious metals prices, which may
be updated daily using the units_cur script.

For more information see the project pages:


For changes since the previous Cygwin release please see below or read
/usr/share/doc/units/NEWS after installation.

A native Windows binary distribution is also available:
