A new release of wget, 1.16.1-1, will be available soon for download
from your favorite mirror, leaving 1.16-1 as previous.

This is a new upstream release. See also the package documentation in

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
this update, please choose the one nearest to you:

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