pmcyg 2.0

A basic installer can be created in less than 25MB; a full set of Cygwin packages might fill a DVD-ROM; or a selection of packages can be constructed to suit your chosen installation medium. pmcyg will then download these and all their dependencies automatically. pmcyg can be used either as a command-line script or via a simple graphical interface.

Release Notes: Ported to use Python-3.x exclusively. Improved handling of misleading package dependencies. Improved architecture for handling user-visible status messages.
