[ANNOUNCEMENT] [1.7] New documentation available

I made all of the latest version of the Cygwin 1.7 documentation
available on  It consists of three parts:

- The User's Guide.  It should be fairly complete now.
  For online reading:

  To fetch a local copy as one single, gzipped html file:

- The API reference.  It now refers to SUSv4 in the first place.
  Hopefully not quite complete.  We're still hoping to get at least the
  wprintf and wscanf familiy of functions into Cygwin before the first
  official release.

- The new FAQ.  Basically only really old cruft or references to Windows
  95/98/Me problems have been ripped out.  A couple of Q&As have been
  rephrased to reflect toe changes in 1.7.  And some Q&As are still
  waiting for a revamp.  Anyway, it's a start, right?

The sources of the docs are in CVS in the winsup/doc directory.  For
those not comfortable with the CVS command line interface there's also
a web interface here:

Bugfixes and enhancements in the form of patches (diff -u) are welcome.

Have fun,
