wget 1.8.2-2 is available. This is a security update.
- fixes CAN-2002-1344 (from Red Hat)
- fixes a off-by-one in cmd_file (from Hrvoje Niksic)
- fixes a off-by-two in compose_file_name (from Debian)
- fixes a problem with quoted tokens in netrc (from Warren Hyde)
- documents WGETRC (from John R. Daily)

GNU Wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP,
HTTPS and FTP, the two most widely-used Internet protocols. It is a
non-interactive commandline tool, so it may easily be called from
scripts, cron jobs, terminals without Xsupport, etc.

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.  DejaGNU is
located in the "Devel" category.  Click on this category to install
DejaGNU if it is not already installed.  If DejaGNU is already
installed, it will be updated automatically.
