I've made a new version of the Cygwin DLL and associated utilities
available for download.  This is a pure bug fix release.  It also
enables basic operations on Windows Vista 64.

The 1.5.23-2 release fixes a packaging bug which resuls in spurious
prob;ems when trying to link agains libg.a.  Otherwise the release
is functionaly equivalent to the 1.5.23-1 release.

Below the fixes compared to 1.5.22-1 again.  This time including
the newlib bugfixes by Eric Blake.

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.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list.  See http://cygwin.com/lists.html for details.
