[ANNOUNCEMENT] [1.5] Updated: {emacs,emacs-X11,emacs-el}-23.0.92-2

New experimental versions of the emacs, emacs-X11, and emacs-el packages
are now available for download for cygwin 1.5, replacing the previous
experimental 22.1-3 packages.  I have left 21.2-13 as current.

This is the first release of emacs for cygwin 1.5 in almost two years,
after a maintainer change.  It is the same version that was made
available for cygwin 1.7 last week.  Please try it and report problems
to the mailing list cygwin AT cygwin DOT com.  If problems arise during
the next few weeks, I will try to fix them.  Otherwise, this may be the
last release of emacs for cygwin 1.5.

There is one known bug: The cygwin build of emacs-23 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.
