The following packages have been updated for the Cygwin distribution:

*** e2fsimage-0.2.2-1
*** e2fsprogs-1.41.12-1
*** libblkid1/libblkid-devel-2.17.2-1
*** libcom_err2/libcom_err-devel-1.41.12-1
*** libe2p2/libe2p-devel-1.41.12-1
*** libext2fs2/libext2fs-devel-1.41.12-1
*** libss2/libss-devel-1.41.12-1
*** libuuid1/libuuid-devel-2.17.2-1
*** util-linux-2.17.2-1

util-linux provides an assortment of utilities for *NIX systems.

e2fsprogs and e2fsimage provide utilities for working with ext2/3/4

The libraries provided by e2fsprogs, which were previously only static,
are now also available as shared libraries.  libblkid and libuuid are
now provided by the util-linux sources but are compatible with those
previously shipped by e2fsprogs.

Note that installing libuuid-devel will make it a little more difficult
to link against w32api's UUID.DLL import lib.  Please note that these
are completely unrelated libraries, and any open-source *NIX software
looking for -luuid is looking for this libuuid-devel.
