The ncftp package has been updated to version 3.1.3-1.
Ncftp is an improved FTP client.  Ncftp's improvements
include support for command line editing, command histories,
recursive gets, automatic anonymous logins and more.

Changes (with respect to 3.1.3-1):
   o Updated to official 3.1.3 source.  See
     http://www.ncftp.com/ncftp/doc/changelog.html for
	 more info.
   o Many of our cygwin-specific patches have been
     absorbed by the official version!
   o Now uses readline for terminal handling, instead of
     its own builtin routines. (Thx to Shane Wegner and
     Hack Kampbjorn).

----------- INSTALLATION -------------

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.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'ncftp' from the 'Net' category.

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US, ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Japan, ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/gnu/gnu-win32/ is usually

In DK, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ 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
