A new version of Setup, release 2.880, has been uploaded to

   https://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe     (32 bit version)
   https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe  (64 bit version)

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

So, I went to download this latest setup.exe using the script
that I've been using...

#!/bin/sh
# From http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2012-04/msg00714.html
name=setup-x86_64.exe
wget -O $name --quiet http://cygwin.com/$name || exit
# ACL issues require some fixing up after wget
chmod +x $name
exit

...but Windows complained about the file format when I tried to launch
it. Then "file" told me...

$ file *.exe
setup-x86_64.exe: gzip compressed data, from Unix
$

...so I added suffix .gz and then used (actually) WinZip to unzip
it, and it created a working setup.exe.

So, is this new behavior? Is it to be expected going forward?
