expat-1.95.5-1 has been uploaded to the Cygwin net distribution.

Expat is an XML parser library written in C.

It is a stream-oriented parser in which an application registers 
handlers for things the parser might find in the XML document 
(like start tags). 

CHANGES (since expat-1.95.4-1):

- Added XML_UseForeignDTD() for improved SAX2 support.
- Added XML_GetFeatureList().
- Defined XML_Bool type and the values XML_TRUE and XML_FALSE.
- Use an incomplete struct instead of a void* for the parser.
- Fixed UTF-8 decoding bug that caused legal UTF-8 to be rejected.
- Finally fixed bug where default handler would report DTD events
  that were already handled by another handler. Initial patch
  contributed by Darryl Miles.
- Removed unnecessary DllMain() function that caused static
  linking into a DLL to be difficult.
- Added VC++ projects for building static libraries.
- Reduced line-length for all source code and headers to be no
  longer than 80 characters, to help with AS/400 support.
- Reduced memory copying during parsing (SF patch #600964).
- Fixed a variety of bugs: see SF issues 580793, 434664, 483514,
  580503, 581069, 584041, 584183, 584832, 585537, 596555, 596678,

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 `expat' from the `Libs' 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 updated fast.

In Denmark, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is usually up-to-date,
packages are in the 'release' directory.

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
