The following packages have been updated for the Cygwin distribution:

* pcre-8.37-1
* libpcre1-8.37-1
* libpcre16_0-8.37-1
* libpcre32_0-8.37-1
* libpcrecpp0-8.37-1
* libpcreposix0-8.37-1
* libpcre-devel-8.37-1

The PCRE library implements regular expression pattern matching using
the same syntax and semantics as Perl.

This is an update to the latest upstream release.  The JIT has been
enabled in this version, which can greatly speed up searches[1] for
software which uses it once they are rebuilt with this version of PCRE.
