A new version of the atool package is now available in the Cygwin distribution.

Changes in this release:
* Corrects a packaging error, that caused most of the the man pages for the
atools to be unavailable.

About atool:

atool is a script for managing file archives of various types (tar, tar+gzip,
zip, bzip2, rar, 7zip, ...).  atool is called under several names:

* aunpack extracts files from an archive. It overcomes the dreaded
"multiple files in archive root" problem by first extracting to a
unique subdirectory, and then moving back the files if possible.
aunpack also prevents local files from being overwritten by mistake.

* apack creates archives.

* als lists files in archives.

* acat extracts files to standard out.

* adiff generates a diff between archives.

* arepack converts between archive formats.
