cURL has been updated to version 7.9.3-1.

As with the previous version, curl has a run-time dependancy 
on openssl-0.9.6b-2 or later (as this was the first release 
to include DLLs). Since I can't "require" a specific build of 
openssl, make sure you've upgraded to this version before 
(or at the same time as) upgrading curl.
OpenSSL 0.9.6c-3 will work fine.

>From the curl mailing list's release note:

"This release is mainly a bugfix release, but there's also a few
new nifty things added. The internals have also undergone a
major restructure in preparations for future innovations."

See http://curl.haxx.se/mail/archive-2002-01/0107.html for details. 

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link  
on the http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin web page.  This downloads  
setup.exe to your system.  Then, run setup and answer all questions.

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

In the US, the following mirror is already up-to-date:
This is a reliable and high-bandwidth mirror site.

Anywhere else, please select something appropriate from the list 
of mirror sites included with setup.exe. If your choice doesn't 
have the latest version of this package, you can either wait for 
the site to be updated or select another mirror. 

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin 
mailing list: <cygwin@cygwin.com>.  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 in general. 

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