These questions are not Cygwin-specific, so they are best asked on
emacs-devel or help-gnu-emacs, but since you asked...

There are several entries in etc/NEWS.22 and etc/NEWS that you should
read; search for "transient".  (They are too long to copy-paste here.)

>From etc/NEWS.22:

  ** C-x C-f RET (find-file), typing nothing in the minibuffer, is no longer
  a special case.

  Since the default input is the current directory, this has the effect
  of specifying the current directory.  Normally that means to visit the
  directory with Dired.

  You can get the old behavior by typing C-x C-f M-n RET, which fetches
  the actual file name into the minibuffer.
