A new version of the atool package is available in the Cygwin
distribution.  atool is a script for managing file archives of various
types (tar, tar+gzip, zip, bzip2, rar, 7zip, ...).  It has separate
commands for creating, unpacking, listing, repacking, and showing
differences between archives of its supported formats.  It overcomes the
dreaded "multiple files in the top level directory" problem by
automatically unpacking archives into an appropriately named
subdirectory if necessary.

Changes in this release:
* New upstream release:  add support for pbzip2, rzip, lrzip, SX zip;
some new options and bug fixes.
* Fix too-specific invocation of /usr/bin/perl5.8.8 to /usr/bin/perl.
