Also updated in this release (cygwin-specific) is the ability to use Windows
or Cygwin file system paths.

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.  Once
you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Libs"
("Devel" for the xerces-c-devel package, "Doc" for the xerces-c-doc
package) and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.
