[ANNOUNCEMENT] TEST RELEASE: Cygwin 2.10.0-0.2




Hi folks,


I uploaded a new Cygwin test release 2.10.0-0.2

I'm planning for a release in early February.  Please test.

=======================================================================
TESTERS HEADS-UP:

  Cygwin 2.10.0 will come with a new gencat tool based on BSD code.

  The consequence is that the Cygwin test package collides with the
  catgets package in terms of the /usr/bin/gencat.exe binary.

  This will be rectified at 2.10.0 release time, but for now, just
  keep this in mind.
  
=======================================================================

What's new:
-----------

- New open(2) flags O_TMPFILE and O_NOATIME.

- scanf/wscanf now handle the POSIX %m modifier.

- scanf now handles the %l[ conversion.

- Improved hostprogs compatibility for cross-compiling the Linux kernel.
  New headers: <asm/bitsperlong.h>, <asm/posix_types.h>.

- Built-in implementation of Stack Smashing Protection compiler feature.
  New APIs: __stack_chk_fail, __stack_chk_guard.

  New APIs:  __chk_fail, __gets_chk, __memcpy_chk, __memmove_chk, __mempcpy_chk,
  __memset_chk, __snprintf_chk, __sprintf_chk, __stpcpy_chk, __stpncpy_chk,
  __strcat_chk, __strcpy_chk, __strncat_chk, __strncpy_chk, __vsnprintf_chk,

What changed:
-------------
