The gdbm package has been updated to version 1.8.3-3. It is based on
the official GNU Database Manager distribution from the FSF,
These packages are compiled against the cygwin-1.3.22 kernel, NOT the
cygwin-1.5.0 testing distribution. They were built on a pure, non-test
system with only official, curr: packages installed. You can (and
should) upgrade to THIS release of gdbm as soon as possible.
CHANGES: (vs. 1.8.3-1)
o Add two new utility programs from Pierre Humblet: dumpgdbm
and loadgdbm. It is hoped that these programs will aid in the
transition to cygwin-1.5.0 later.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin web page. This downloads setup.exe
to your system.
Run setup and answer all of the questions. You must choose a
mirror, since direct downloads from 'cygwin.com' are no longer
The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and should install the gdbm package automatically. To install
this TEST version of gdbm you'll have to select the experimental radio
button in setup.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: firstname.lastname@example.org . I would appreciate if you
would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly. This
includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin general.
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
