+Subject: biber 2.9-1
+
 The following package has been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:
 
-* biber-2.7-1
+* biber-2.9-1
 
 Biber is a BibTeX replacement for users of BibLaTeX.  Biber supports
 full UTF-8, can (re-)encode input and output, supports highly
 configurable sorting, dynamic bibliography sets, and many other
 features.
 
-This is an update to the latest upstream release.  It is marked as a
-test release because it requires at least perl-5.24, which is
-currently only available in Cygwin as a test release.
-
-In addition, you will have to install the biber prerequisite
-modules[1] using cpan, since these are not yet available for perl-5.24
-in the Cygwin distribution.
-
-Finally, biber-2.7 is designed to work with biblatex-3.7.  This will
-be available shortly in a test release of
-texlive-collection-bibtexextra.
+This is an update to the latest upstream release.  It is designed to
+work with biblatex-3.9.  The latter is contained in
+texlive-collection-bibtexextra, which has just been updated also.
