A new version of Setup, release 2.876, has been uploaded to

   https://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe     (32 bit version)
   https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe  (64 bit version)

Changes compared to 2.875:

- Refuse to run on Windows XP/2003 and earlier, as they are no longer 
supported by Cygwin.

- Fix the code for C++11 std::string, which was the underlying issue 
causing an error with a root install path of more than 15 characters.

Please send bug reports, as usual, to the public mailing list cygwin AT
