Hi to the list.
Yesterday the new "test" release of CygWin (1.5.3) became "stable" and
with that many cygwin packages, rsync-2.5.6-3 (compiled for cygwin
1.5.x) among them.
This means that everyone had better open http://cygwin.com/setup.exe and
"upgrade it all", and get the new "64-bit file pointers" feature.
Please notice that cygwin-1.3 binaries can work with cygwin-1.5 library,
but not the reverse.
Better yet would be to use newly compiled binaries with the new library,
to be both sure that it works and it supports 64-bit files.
Almost each package in the cygwin distribution has been upgraded.
