Summary description: A cygwin bash script for automatic updating and installing new packages of MiKTeX
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
The miktex_update script offers automatic updating and/or installing of new
packages of an existing MiKTeX installation. It supports direct connection
with online repositories of the MiKTeX server network, as well as synchronizing 
a local repository (CTAN) with following update. In the end you should have an
up-to-date and complete MiKTeX installation.

License: LPPL

Changes in v1.1: 

in local searchonly mode (miktex_update -ls) mpm could not access cygwin's 
/tmp/... directory -> Error: mpm.exe: Invalide MiKTeX configuration. 
-> moved temp directory to %TEMP% (Windows environment variable) directory
Changed behavior of option -o, --online (without -r, --repository)
the script will no longer echo a random online repository, but use it directly
to connect with the MiKTeX server network.
