cygutils-0.9.7-1 has been uploaded to the Cygwin net distribution.
cygutils provides a collection of small -- and hopefully useful --
utilities.  This package started life as the "misc" package from
the "CygUtils" website, but has been renamed and has a new home:

It provides:
   ascii.exe    banner.exe   cal.exe       dump.exe   namei.exe
   conv.exe     u2d.exe      unix2dos.exe  d2u.exe    dos2unix.exe
   putclip.exe  getclip.exe

The source package provides:
   semtool.exe  semstat.exe  semtool.exe   msgtool.exe
   (these are not distributed in binary form because they require
   the cygipc package -- which is not part of the official cygwin
   distribution.  There are good reasons for this; search the
   mailing list archives if you're curious)


To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to
your system.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'cygutils' from the 'Devel' category.

In DK, is usually up-to-date.

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