[ANNOUNCEMENT] crypt 2.0-1




The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* libcrypt0-2.0-1
* libcrypt-devel-2.0-1
* mingw64-i686-crypt-2.0-1
* mingw64-x86_64-crypt-2.0-1

This packages provides a library which exports the functions crypt(3), 
crypt_r(3), encrypt(3), and setkey(3).  The created passwords are 100% 
identical to those created by the Linux crypt(3).

This release is a completely new implementation based on musl's.  It adds 
the reentrant crypt_r function, as well as support for MD5, Blowfish, 
SHA-256, and SHA-512 ciphers as on other systems:

The crypt.exe binary was removed as it was non-standard and intended for 
use on Windows 9x systems.
