A new release of findutils, 4.5.9-2, is available as the current
version, replacing 4.5.9-1 and leaving 4.5.8-1 as previous.

NEWS:
=====
This is a minor release to try and fix -execdir executing in the wrong
directory.  The experimental build released last week passed both list
and my testing, so it is now promoted to current.  See also
/usr/share/doc/findutils/.

DESCRIPTION:
============
The findutils package contains programs which will help you locate files
on your system.  The find utility searches through a hierarchy of
directories looking for files which match a certain set of criteria
(such as a filename pattern).  The xargs utility builds and executes
command lines from standard input arguments (usually lists of file names
generated by the find command).  The locate utility scans a database of
filenames and displays matches.  The updatedb utility builds the
database for locate.

UPDATE:
=======
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. Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up
'findutils' from the 'Base' category (it should already be selected).

DOWNLOAD:
=========
Note that downloads from sourceware.org (aka cygwin.com) aren't allowed
due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need to find a
mirror which has this update, please choose the one nearest to you:

QUESTIONS:
==========
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
