stunnel 5.58-1 is now available in Cygwin. This release includes one
security fix related to Cygwin:

* The "redirect" option was fixed to properly handle unauthenticated
requests (thx to Martin Stein).

Plus other new features and bug fixes. Everyone should upgrade to this
release. Please see the upstream changelog[1] for the full list. 

stunnel is a program that allows you to encrypt arbitrary TCP connections
inside TLS (Transport Layer Security, the successor to Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL)).  stunnel can allow you to secure non-TLS-aware daemons and
protocols (like POP, IMAP, LDAP, etc) by having stunnel provide the
encryption, requiring no changes to the daemon's code.
