I've updated the version of file to 4.21-1.

This version is an update to the official version 4.21.  This is mainly
a security bugfix release, fixing a buffer underflow vulnerability. See

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-2799

The Cygwin version is build from the vanilla sources, plus an additional
patch for a problem found by the AMaVis team.  The patch to the magic
file as described in paragraph 4. "Additional information" from

http://www.amavis.org/security/asa-2007-3.txt

has been applied to this Cygwin release.


To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
