Along with a large number of bugfixes, the following changes
have been made since the previous Cygwin release:
o CURLOPT_POSTFIELDSIZE_LARGE added to offer POSTs larger than 2GB
o CURL_VERSION_LARGEFILE is a feature bit returned by libcurls that
large file support
o libcurl only requires winsock 1.1 on windows now

o the default Accept: header used in HTTP requests changed
o asynch dns lookups now require the c-ares library
o curl --socks can be used to set a SOCKS5 proxy to use
o response-headers received after a (proxy) CONNECT request are now
to the header callback just like other headers
o allows the URL to be set by a callback when using the multi interface
o large file support was added. Use one of the new options:
RESUME_FROM_LARGE and MAXFILESIZE_LARGE
o the new --ftp-pasv overrides a previous --ftpport
o CURLOPT_FTPSSL and ftps:// now do ssl over FTP "The Right Way" (the
