Version 2.6.9-2 of rsync has been uploaded.

rsync is a file transfer program. rsync uses the 'rsync algorithm' which
provides a very fast method for bringing remote files into sync. It does
this by sending just the differences in the files across the link,
without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends
of the link beforehand.

Please notice that 2.6.9-1 rsync has a security bug that might
(or might not) affect you, depending on your use case.
This rsync-2.6.9-2 package containing a patch to this problem.

If you're not sure what version do you have you can
use the following command to both check version number
and integrity of the install:
% cygcheck -c rsync
