I've just updated the Cygwin 1.7 version of OpenSSH to 5.2p1-2.

This is a minor update to allow a more sophisticated selection of the
user running the sshd service.  For that reason, a new option has been
added to the ssh-host-config script:


This allows to overwrite the default behaviour of the script in choosing
the service account, and, in conjunction with the -y or -n options, a
fully automatic installation without enforced user interaction.

Note that this release relies on the latest csih package release 0.1.9-2.

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.
