[ANNOUNCEMENT] New release of setup.exe (

Content-Type: text/plain
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

I'm happy to announce a new release of setup.exe. It will *improve* the
display of permissions for use with the ntsec setting of cygwin (which
is the default now) in the majority of cases. More fine tuning may be

the calls to test this set of snapshots of setup.exe.

Two things pose some concern to Pierre, who developed the setup/ntsec
code: domain users and the Windows popup asking if setup should run as

An additional change in this release is the ability to use http proxies
that require a username with an empty password.

To download this version, simply click on the 'install cygwin now' link
on the cygwin homepage, or wait for setup.exe to be copied out to your
preferred mirror.
