Hi folks,

I just uploaded a new Cygwin 1.7 test release, 1.7.0-59.

Just a bugfix update.

What's new in contrast to 1.7.0-58

- Nothing.


- Fix a bug in wcsncpy where the function call wcsncpy (dest, src, n)
  could end up copying n+1 characters to dest.

- The getsockname/getpeername patches added to -58 didn't return the
  correct length for unbound AF_LOCAL sockets (3 instead of 2).

- Fix a bug in readdir which could lead to incorrect inode numbers
  for "." and ".." entries on some remote filesystems (ext3 over
  NFS for instance).

- Fix a bug in readdir which could result in wrong inode numbers on remote
  NFS filesystems.  Also works around a bug in the Windows 7 NFS client.

- Fix popen problems with standard handles


- Q: How do I know that I'm running Cygwin 1.7.0-59?

  A: The `uname -v' command prints "2009-08-18 18:42"

Have fun,
