I'm too exhausted to f%&# around with CRLFs, indents that don't, CVS and
sometimes Y, ChangeLog nits, etc etc etc, but since I've got a script to upload
new setup builds to my web site automatically I figured I'd do so to show off
some of my latest changes.  To wit:

- The most noticeable change is the size and look of the wizard.  It's now
99.44% compliant with MS's "Backward Compatible Wizard 97" specs, which
basically means it's a lot bigger than what we've had before, looks a lot more
like a lot of other installers and wizards floating around (and unfortunately
InstallShield, but you gotta take the good with the horrific I guess), and has a
bit more expositional text, complete with two different fonts.  That big white
rectangle is supposed to be a bitmap, but the Cygwin resource compiler was
choking on it so I just put in a big white rectangle.  Other choices are black
rectangles and grey rectangles.  Yep, three different not-even-colors.
Incredible.

- "Add user URL" has been consolidated into the Site selection page and now
works as intended (sites get added to the URL list and you can then download
from them).  Eventually there'll be a "Remove", but the added URLs currently
don't persist across instantiations so the lack of that functionality is less of
a problem than you'd think.

- Some other, minor stuff.

EXE and sources are here: http://home.att.net/~g.r.vansickle/cygwin/setup/.  For
evaluation purposes only.  Not to be used as a flotation device.

I'm going to bed now so I can get good and loaded tonight.  Merry New Year's Eve
Day, every one!
