I have just released cygport-0.10.10 for the Cygwin distribution and the
Fedora Cygwin repository.  New features in this release:

* Documentation is nearly complete.  Please let me know (via the list) 
if there is anything else which should be documented, or anything which 
should be fixed or added to the existing documentation.

* Only shared libtool libraries are built by default.  If you absolutely 
need static libraries (and if you're not absolutely sure why, you 
don't), add --disable-static to cygconf or CYGCONF_ARGS.

* .tar.lrz tarballs are now supported (requires lrzip).

* The "download" command only downloads source files/patches which are 
not already present.  If you need to replace these files with newly 
downloaded copies, use the "downloadall" command.

Changes in this release (21):
       mirrors: use new KDE mirror redirector
       xorg: add SRC_URI and GIT_URI for drivers
       unpack: add support for .tar.lrz
