Updated: Cygwin 1.7.28

Hi Cygwin friends and users,

I just released Cygwin 1.7.28.  This is mainly a bugfix release.

To install 32-bit Cygwin use
To install 64 bit Cygwin use

The 64 bit Cygwin distribution doesn't yet come with as many packages
as the 32 bit version, but more packages will be available over time.

If you're already running a 32 bit version of Cygwin on 64 bit Windows
machines, you can continue to do so.  If you're planning a new install
of Cygwin on a 64 bit Windows machine, consider to use the new 64 bit
Cygwin version, unless you need certain packages not yet available in
the 64 bit release.

What's new:

- popen now supports the Glibc 'e' flag to set the FD_CLOEXEC flag on the pipe
  in a thread-safe way.

- netinet/ip6.h header.

What changed:

- Switch to BSD FILE stream fopen/exit semantics, as in all BSD variants and
  Linux/GLibc:  Don't fflush/lseek a FILE stream on fclose and exit, if it
  only has been read from.

Bug Fixes

- Store and restore FPU control word and XMM registers when a signal is

- Signals should no longer hang when they occur within a low-level
  Windows DLL.

- If it turns out that transactions don't work during unlink(2) or rename(2),
  despite the fact that the filesystem claims to handle them, stop transaction
  and try again without.

- Closing a dup'ed master tty handle should no longer invalidate the dup'ed fd.

- Problems where ps hangs when used in a pipeline should now be solved.

- Using gdb from a Windows console rather than a pty should no longer randomly

- Fix locale-specific radix char handling in scanf family of functions.

- The console buffer should no longer be cleared when the resolution of the
  console exceeds some magic threshold.

- Fix inadvertent clearing of entire console buffer on clear screen.

- Make sure that stackdump file is closed after use.

Have fun,
