A new release of wget, 1.13.4-1, is available for download, leaving 
1.12-1 as previous.

This is a new upstream release, with news highlights included below, and 
including the fix for CVE-2010-2252.  See also the package documentation 
in /usr/share/doc/wget/.

GNU Wget is a file retrieval utility which can use either the HTTP, 
HTTPS, or FTP protocols. Wget features include the ability to work in 
the background while you're logged out, recursive retrieval of 
directories, file name wildcard matching, remote file timestamp storage 
and comparison, use of Rest with FTP servers and Range with HTTP servers 
to retrieve files over slow or unstable connections, support for Proxy 
servers, and configurability.

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 'wget' 
from the 'Web' category.

Note that downloads from cygwin.com aren't allowed due to bandwidth
limitations.  This means that you will need to find a mirror which has

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
