[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: texinfo-6.1-1

[Resending with corrected Subject.]

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* texinfo-6.1-1
* info-6.1-1
* texinfo-tex-6.1-1

Texinfo is a documentation system that uses a single source file to produce output in a number of formats, both online and printed (dvi, html, info, pdf, xml, etc.).

This is an update to the latest upstream release. See the release announcement ( for a list of changes since the last release.

Cygwin packaging

The info package contains the standalone info viewer as well as the install-info program. The texinfo package contains everything else except support for the printable output formats (such as pdf). The texinfo-tex package supplies the latter. In particular, /usr/bin/makeinfo is in the texinfo package, but the command 'makeinfo --pdf' won't work unless you install texinfo-tex.

This release of the info package also contains a postinstall script that was previously in the _update-info-dir package, which is now obsolete.
