A new version of Setup (2.917) has been uploaded to:  (64 bit version)     (32 bit version)

Changes compared to 2.915:

- Show a warning if running on a deprecated Windows version

Support for:
- Windows 6.0 (Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008)
- 32-bit Windows (including WoW64)
in Cygwin is deprecated and will be removed in the next major version, 
sometime this year.

This warning can be disabled with the '--no-warn-deprecated-windows' or 
'-w' option, or using a "In the future, do not show me this dialogue 
box" checkbox.

- Fix setup silently exiting if elevated and 'CYGWIN=winsymlinks:lnk' is 
in the environment (by ignoring that environment variable)

- Fix creating bogus versions of obsoleted packages (under certain 
specific circumstances), which then fail to download because they don't 

For instructions on obtaining and building the source code for setup, 

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