setup 2.891release candidate - please test





A new setup release candidate is available at:

  https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.891.x86_64.exe (64 bit version)
  https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.891.x86.exe    (32 bit version)

Please test and report any problems here.

This is not the place for setup feature requests.

Changes compared to 2.889:

- 'Use HTTP/FTP Proxy' connection type now uses the WinINet API

As a consequence, the '--user-agent' option now affects this connection type as well

- Remove the 'Direct(legacy)' connection type and associated cruft

There have been no reported problems with it's replacement, the 'Direct' connection type, since it's introduction in 2.878
(See https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-announce/2017-05/msg00053.html)

If this is the currently configured connection type, it will be silently migrated to 'Direct'

- Improve file:// URL handling

All well-formed file URLs should now work. Malformed file URLs we previously accepted should also still work.

Thanks to SZAVAI Gyula for these changes.

- Various fixes for regressions in 'Install from Local Directory' mode
