I've updated the version of sed to 4.0.9-1.

This is the latest stable sed release 4.0.9.

Changes from 4.0.8:

  0 address behaves correctly in single-file (-i and -s) mode.

  documentation improvements.

  tested with many hosts and compilers.

  updated regex matcher from upstream, with many bugfixes and speedups.

  the `N' command's feature that is detailed in the BUGS file was disabled
  by the a patch in sed 4.0.8.  The behavior has now been restored, and is
  only enabled if POSIXLY_CORRECT behavior is not requested.

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 "Base"
and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it 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.
