No, it's not a typo: after all these years, I've finally gotten off my
kiester and released a mutt-1.4 package.  There have been many bugs fixed
and many features added since 1.2.5i-6, and also some security issues fixed,
so I encourage you to update immediately.

Once you update, be sure to see the /usr/doc/Cygwin/mutt-1.4-1.README and the
HTML docs in /usr/doc/mutt-1.4/html for more information.

Please send any *Cygwin-specific* Mutt questions or bug reports (e.g., "Mutt's
acting crazy and I'm pretty sure it's just this Cygwin port") to
mailto:cygwin@cygwin.com.  For non-Cygwin-specific questions or bug reports
(e.g., "How do I change the UI colors?"), please visit the official Mutt site at


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.

Note that we do not allow downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka
cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.  You might have to wait as much
as 24 hours to find a mirror with the updated version of cygwin on it.
Be patient.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.  This includes ideas and comments about the
setup utility or Cygwin in general.
