We are now finally able to release OpenSSH-2.2.0p1 and OpenSSL-0.9.5a

This versions are identical to those on with an
important exception:

Since they are now part of the base package their install path
has changed from /usr/local to /usr. The configuration files are
now located in /etc instead of /usr/local/etc.

After installation of OpenSSH you should run the shell script


This shell script installs the configuration files if you are
installing for the first time.

If you are updating from a previous version, the shell script
asks you whether you want to copy your previous configuration
files from the old location to the new one and whether you want
to erase the files in the old location. Keep in mind, that the
configuration is aborted if an instance of ssh or sshd is still

If you are updating, take care that you are really using the
NEW ssh-config in /usr/bin and not the old one in /usr/local/bin!!!

The script is not intended to deinstall an old OpenSSL installation.
If you want to deinstall the old OpenSSL installation, use the
following script snippet:

=== SNIP ===
rm -f /usr/local/bin/c_rehash
rm -f /usr/local/bin/openssl.exe
rm -rf /usr/local/include/openssl
rm -f /usr/local/lib/libcrypto.a
rm -f /usr/local/lib/libssl.a
rm -rf /usr/local/ssl
=== SNAP ===

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe
to your system.

Run setup and answer all of the questions.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
choose a mirror site for your download.  The '' site
is badly overloaded.  The mirrors below have the latest version of this
package: (Austria) (Japan) (US)

Note that if this is the first time that you've run the new GUI version
of setup, it will currently download the whole cygwin net release again.
After this point it will only download and install what is needed.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: .  I would appreciate if you
would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly. This
includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
