The following test packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* dash

DASH is a POSIX-compliant implementation of /bin/sh that aims to be
as small as possible. It does this without sacrificing speed where
possible. In fact, it is significantly faster than bash (the GNU
Bourne-Again SHell) for most tasks.

Please test this Base category shell as extensively as possible
(especially if you are a Cygwin package maintainer) as this package is
used in all installations and has not been upgraded for a few years. 
I have it locally installed as my /bin/sh so it is used by most scripts,
cron jobs, and cygport builds, so it has and is getting frequent
exercise with no apparent issues so far.
If no issues are reported within a couple of weeks the package will be
upgraded to current.

For more information see the project home page:

As there have been many changes since the previous Cygwin release please
