[ANNOUNCEMENT] [1.7] Updated: {emacs,emacs-X11,emacs-el}-23.0.92-1

New experimental versions of the emacs, emacs-X11, and emacs-el packages are now available for download for those testing cygwin 1.7, replacing the previous experimental 22.1-3 packages. I have left 21.2-13 as current.

This is the first release in almost two years, after a maintainer change. If no serious problems arise, I hope to make some version of emacs-23 the current version of emacs by the time Cygwin 1.7 is released.

There is one known bug: The cygwin build of emacs has problems getting the local time zone (see This affects emacs functions like display-time. A workaround is to set the TZ environment variable before starting emacs. For example,

export TZ=America/New_York

This is an upstream pre-release for what will be emacs 23.1.  See

for more information.

Emacs is a powerful, customizable, self-documenting, modeless text editor. Emacs contains special code editing features, a scripting language (elisp), and the capability to read mail, news, and more without leaving the editor.
