The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* teckit-2.5.9-1
* libteckit0-2.5.9-1
* libteckit-devel-2.5.9-1

TECkit is a low-level toolkit intended to be used by other
applications that need to perform encoding conversions (e.g., when
importing legacy data into a Unicode-based application).  The primary
component of the TECkit package is therefore a library that performs
conversions; this is the TECkit engine.  The engine relies on mapping
tables in a specific binary format (for which documentation is
available); there is a compiler that creates such tables from a
human-readable mapping description (a simple text file).

This is an update to the latest upstream release.  The main change is
that Unicode 12 is now supported.
