Subject: Updated: base-files-4.3-3

Message-ID: <871rayeemw.fsf@Rainer.invalid> (raw)

The package base-files has been updated to version 4.3-3.  This is a
bugfix release.

Change Log
4.3-3 (bugfix release)
    * etc/defaults/etc/profile: Fix a bug so that the system variable
      CYGWIN_USEWINPATH actually does what it was supposed to do.
4.3-2 (bugfix/feature release)
    * etc/defaults/etc/skel/.bashrc: Remove outdated comments on
      completion and mention the bash_completion package as a
      prerequisite.  See
    * etc/postinstall/ If a non-default file is
      kept, show a diff to the default version if /bin/diff is
      installed and the target is a plain file.
    * etc/postinstall/ Do not touch file before
      installing so the modes are kept intact, like cygport is already
      doing for some time.  Reported by Christian Franke, see
4.3-1 (feature release)
    * Cygwin.bat: Add to base-files.  This version is independent of
      the actual install path, see:
    * etc/defaults/etc/profile: Allow the use of the unaltered
      existing system PATH by setting the system variable
    * etc/defaults/etc/profile: avoid second invocation of
      /usr/bin/hostname.  Reported by Helmut Karlowski, see
    * etc/postinstall/ (WINETC): Use /proc/cygdrive
      prefixed path which keeps working even if the user changes the
      /cygdrive prefix after installation.
