Here goes the announcement of the 2.6.2-3 package for cygwin (available
from cygwin's setup itself).

If you wonder what "2.6.2-3" means, it's basically the third "cygwin
package" that uses rsync-2.6.2 sources.
This third attempt solves both the august security fix and the textmode
bug that 2.6.2-2 had.

follows the original announcement of the cygwin package (only change I
removed the cygwin-ML unsubscribe info as it's not peritent here)

Version 2.6.2-3 of the open source utility that provides
fast incremental file transfer has been uploaded.

If you're not sure what version do you have you can use the following
command (if you don't have grep omit the last part):
$ cygcheck -cd rsync
rsync                2.6.2-2

Version 2.6.2-3 is basically the same as 2.6.2-2, but it solves the
textmode issue that did "corrupt" many binary files out there.
(I'm still wondering why that bug didn't show in earlier versions, given
the fact that it was there since the beginning)

Many thanks goes to Sjoerd Mullender for finding (and fixing) the bug
while I was still lingering on hot tropical sand 0=)

If you're using 2.6.2-1 or earlier version to avoid the textmode bug,
you're now strongly advised to upgrade to 2.6.2-4, as it contains the
patch to fix august's SECURITY ADVISORY as in:
