The following package has been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* sshfs-3.7.2-2

This update has the following minor bug fixes:
- upstream fixes to sshfs.rst, the source for man page sshfs(1);
- local fix to 'sshfs -h' so WinFSP options are displayed properly.

Overview information follows...

This is a port of the reference version of sshfs.  It allows access to
local or remote file folders via an ssh (more precisely, sftp) connection.
The folder appears as a local folder on the user's system.

Sshfs requires cygfuse and a Windows FUSE provider to function.  At this
time WinFSP is the only Windows FUSE provider supported.  Information
about WinFSP can be found at <http://www.secfs.net/winfsp>.  Download the
installer for WinFSP from <https://winfsp.dev/rel/>, run it, choose Custom
Setup, select Core (other features are supplied by cygfuse).

Please send questions or concerns to the main Cygwin mailing list as usual.
