The following packages have been updated for the Cygwin distribution:

*** mysql-5.5.39-1
*** mysqld-5.5.39-1
*** mysql-test-5.5.39-1
*** libmysqlclient18-5.5.39-1
*** libmysqlclient-devel-5.5.39-1
*** libmysqld0-5.5.39-1
*** libmysqld-devel-5.5.39-1

MySQL Community Edition is a freely downloadable version of the world's
most popular open source database that is supported by an active
community of open source developers and enthusiasts.

Please note that the server ('mysqld' package) should be considered
*experimental*; for production use, I suggest using a native Windows
version from dev.mysql.com.  Input from experienced MySQL server
administrators to improve this component would be welcome.

The client library and apps are stable, but when connecting to a native
Windows MySQL server on the same machine, you MUST use as the
hostname; 'localhost' is reserved for connecting to the Cygwin mysqld
via a UNIX socket.

This is an update to the latest upstream 5.5 release.
