cURL has been updated to version 7.9.8-2. 

The only new thing is that the shared library DLL (cygcurl-2.dll) has been 
packaged differently (no longer stipped), so as to support something called 
rebasing. Thanks to Stipe Tolj for bringing this to my attention.


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. 

Not all mirrors will have been updated at the time this announcement is 
made. If your usual mirror 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>. 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.
