[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: OpenSSL-0.9.6c-3

I've updated the version of OpenSSL in cygwin/latest to 0.9.6c-3.

The version 0.9.6c-2 had a syntax error in the csh startup file

Another fact I forgot to mention in my announcement of 0.9.6c-2
was that the binary package is build without support for the
cryptographic algorithms IDEA, RC5 and MDC2.  These three algorithms
suffer patenting issues in some countries which disallow usage
w/o a fee.  If you're not affected by that and you're abslolutely
sure to need these algorithms, you'll have to rebuild the OpenSSL
DLLs from the source archive.  You'll find a build instruction in 

Beginning with version 0.9.6c-2, the package is splitted into two

- openssl	which contains only the runtime environment needed
		to run applications using openssl.

- openssl-devel	which contains the header files and link libraries
		needed to link applications against openssl.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe
to your system.  The, run setup and answer all of the questions.

Note that we do not allow downloads from (aka due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US, is a
reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Germany, is
usually pretty good.

In the UK,
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package then
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another mirror.
