>>Dear Cygwin Community,
>>Thanks to your support and feedback, I am pleased to announce the
>>commercial availability of Cygwin 1.0.  As you know, Cygwin is a
>>UNIX/Linux shell environment and portability layer enabling 
>delivery of
>>open source projects to Windows.  You already use Cygwin to help
>>integrate Windows into your UNIX-based environment and migrate
>>applications from UNIX to Windows.
>>With the new enhancements included on the CD (see
>> for more details), you can now easily
>>review info files and man pages.  In addition, the CD contains a more
>>UNIX-like layout that has been discussed and recommended by the
>>community.  The compiler incorporates our Code Fusion technology which
>>includes optimizations for the Intel Pentium family of 
>processors.  I am
>>also pleased that this release contains our graphical 
>debugger, Insight.
>>The best news is that soon (on October 15) I will be offering the
>>community a chance to get the new CD and docs for $20 off the "street
>>price" or $79 (USD).
>>Here's how you get it: go to , 
>click on the
>>"Buy Cygwin" link.  On the "SHOP CYGNUS" main page, under the Cygwin
>>section, click on "Community Offer." The password is "SHELL" 
>- and that
>>will tag the order for the special price.
>>Again, this will not be available until October 15.  You'll have to
>>wait until then to order.
>>We are calling this version of Cygwin version 1.0 but it is 
>>B21.  It comes with a number of additional binaries from a standard
>>net release.  Currently, the additional tools are not mentioned on
>>the web site but they soon will be.  Until then, I've 
>attached a list of
>>the additional binaries in the "contrib/bin" directory to 
>this message.
>>If you have any questions about things like price, shipping and
>>handling, etc.  please send them to .  
>DJ and I will try
>>to answer any technical questions in the
>>mailing list (but please remember that this activity is not part of
>>our full-time jobs).
>>I'm excited about this Cygwin offering and can't wait to see this on
>>the shelves of CompUSA, Best Buy, etc.  The box has, IMO, some really
>>cool cover art of a shell -- to symbolize the use of a UNIX/Linux
>>shell on Windows.
