I've updated the cURL and libcurl packages to 7.16.3-1. This is a new
upstream release containing new features as well as bugfixes.
One of the main new features is the ability to transfer files over SSH,
using the scp:// and sftp:// URLs. To accomplish this libcurl now requires
libssh2, which has also been added to the distro.
This release also bumps the library version to 4, which means the old
libcurl3 package is now deprecated, but still supported. It will remain
for backwards compatibility until all packages that are currently linked
with libcurl3 have been updated.
cURL is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax,
supporting FTP, FTPS, TFTP, HTTP, HTTPS, GOPHER, TELNET, DICT, FILE and
LDAP. curl supports HTTPS certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP
uploading, HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, user+password
authentication (Basic, Digest, NTLM, Negotiate, kerberos...), file
transfer resume, proxy tunneling and a busload of other useful tricks.
See <http://curl.haxx.se/> for more information about cURL, and
<http://curl.haxx.se/changes.html> for a list of what has changed.
SSL/TLS support via OpenSSL is enabled in these packages.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
