The following package has been updated in the Cygwin net release:

*** cygport-0.2.4-1

New features since 0.2.2-1:

* Zero-byte patches are not included in the -src tarball.

* localstatedir defaults to /var, with the exception of gnome2 packages
which require /var/lib for compatibility with scrollkeeper.

* Support for GStreamer 0.8, as well as Fluendo plugins for GStreamer 0.10.

* Fix detection of ruby-gnome2 import library names.

* CYGWIN-PATCHES/*.list files can be provided as an alternative to
defining PKG_CONTENTS[*].

* cygautoreconf accepts NO_AUTO* variables to disable individual
autotools (meant mainly for NO_AUTOHEADER).

* Fix naming of xorg-font-* packages.

For anyone interested in cygport development, make sure you're
using CVS.  I'm really overdue for shipping 0.2.5 with a lot of new
features, including support for mirror:// SRC_URI's, Mono and Gtk#, git
repositories, and improvements to cygautoreconf and gnome2_autoreconf.
