A new version of Setup (2.926) has been uploaded to:

  https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe  (64 bit version)
  https://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe     (32 bit version)

Changes compared to 2.926:

- On Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8 and Windows Server 
2012 (Windows NT 6.1, 6.2) and earlier, stop with an error indicating 
Cygwin is unsupported. (Use the --allow-unsupported-windows option, 
which requires an explicit --site URL, to avoid that check)

- The uncompressed setup executable is now published to 
https://cygwin.com/setup/ for the benefit of the few who can't run a UPX 
compressed setup, or want to run it under gdb.

- Added a resize grip in the bottom-right of the dialog, to visually 
indicate that it is resizeable.

- Added Ctrl+K accelerator for keep or skip in package chooser (thanks 
to Christian Franke)

- Enhance 'quiet' mode to allow window to be input-disabled or hidden

'-q'/'--quiet-mode' now accepts an optional parameter specifying how the 
setup wizard behaves: 'unattended' is the existing behaviour, 'noinput' 
also disables mouse and keyboard interaction with the wizard, and 
'hidden' hides the wizard.

- Fix extracting large files (>2 GiB) from packages (thanks to Achim Gratz)

- Translation updates.

- Add German and Polish translations (thanks to weblate contributors 
Markus, Ettore Atalan, Luis Mengel and WaldiS)

Some small adjustments have been made to the layout of the dialog 
templates to accommodate places where the translation is longer.  Please 
report it if there are any spots I've missed where the text overflows 
the space available.
