The package 'gd' with corresponding devel and runtime support is now available 
with the Cygwin distribution.

gd is a graphics library. It allows your code to quickly draw images
complete with lines, arcs, text, multiple colors, cut and paste from other
images, and flood fills, and write out the result as a PNG or JPEG file. This
is particularly useful in World Wide Web applications, where PNG and JPEG are
two of the formats accepted for inline images by most browsers.
gd is not a paint program. If you are looking for a paint program, you are
looking in the wrong place. If you are not a programmer, you are looking in the
wrong place, unless you are installing a required library in order to run an
application. gd does not provide for every possible desirable graphics operation.
It is not necessary or desirable for gd to become a kitchen-sink graphics
package, but version 2.0 does include most frequently requested features,
including both truecolor and palette images, resampling (smooth resizing of
truecolor images) and so forth.



To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Libs"
and then click on the appropriate fields until the above announced
version numbers appear if they are not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin/X mailing
