A new setup release candidate is available at:

   https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.883.x86_64.exe (64 bit version)

Please test and report problems to cygwin@xxxxxxxxxx. If no regressions are discovered in the next week or so, it will be promoted to release.

Here is an old issue - say you go to install a package, but your download is
corrupt. You get this:

   ---------------------------
   Cygwin Setup
   ---------------------------
   Package file wget has a corrupt local copy, please remove and retry.
   ---------------------------
OK ---------------------------

*Then setup closes*. This is not right. If the archive is missing, or if the
archive fails the SHA check, *then the file should be redownloaded by setup*,
and SHA check run again. With the current system, setup exits, then the user has
to navigate to where the problem file is, for example:

C:\http%3a%2f%2fcygwin.mirror.constant.com%2f\x86_64\release\wget

then delete the problem file, then restart setup. I cant see why setup shouldnt
just automate all of this. Also here is a new issue - on the "Select Connection
Type" page - "Use System Proxy Settings" is the first choice, and by default the
selected choice. "Direct Connection" should be the first choice, and by default
the selected choice.
