I've updated the gawk package to 4.0.1-1.

This is the new upstream release.

Changes from 4.0.0 to 4.0.1

1. The default handling of backslash in sub() and gsub() has been reverted to
   the behavior of 3.1. It was silly to think I could break compatibility that
   way, even for standards compliance.

2. Completed the implementation of Rational Range Interpretation.

3. Failure to get the group set is no longer a fatal error.

4. Lots of minor bugs fixed and portability clean-ups along the way. See
   the ChangeLog for details.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin" link on the
http://cygwin.com web page. This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
