cURL has been updated to version 7.10.8-1.

Since several releases have passed since the last time I
updated the Cygwin build, I'm not including the list of fixes
in this email; if you're interested, please read the following
upstream release announcements:

 7.10.5: http://curl.haxx.se/mail/archive-2003-05/0100.html
 7.10.6: http://curl.haxx.se/mail/archive-2003-07/0150.html
 7.10.7: http://curl.haxx.se/mail/archive-2003-08/0081.html

Probably the most significant recent update (at least for us
windows users) is support for NTLM authentication schemes,
along with a new --anyauth command-line option that instructs
cURL to use the best supported authentication method.

The new NTLM support does NOT include the ability to 
automatically supply the NTLM credentials based on the currently

To obtain this update, run Cygwin's setup.exe wizard.

You can obtain a copy of setup.exe by clicking
 the "Install Now!" icon at http://cygwin.com/.

To install cURL for the first time, choose "cURL" from the 
 packages list, in the "Web" category. If you already have 
 it installed, the update will be pre-selected.

Remember that some mirror sites may not have updated before
 this announcement is made. If your usual mirror doesn't have 
 the latest version of this package, please be patient.
 (or select an alternate mirror...)
