I've updated the version of mt to 2.1-1.

This mt takes advantage of the new tape features in Cygwin 1.5.8.
E. g. it shows tape drive type and density under XP and 2K3.

Note that versions prior to 2.1 will show incorrect block sizes
under XP and 2K3 beginning with Cygwin 1.5.8, since the usage of
the mtget.mt_resid and mtget.mt_dsreg fields have been aligned to
the Linux SCSI tape driver.

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.

Run setup and answer all of the questions.

Note that if this is the first time that you've run the new GUI version
of setup, it will currently download the whole cygwin net release again.
After this point it will only download what is needed.

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