GNU emacs package 21.2-7 has been released and should be on the various
mirrors soon.

This release fixes a packaging error in 21.2-6 -- I forgot to
ship the DOC file.  So the built-in emacs lisp documentation
should work now.

There are no porting bugs that I am aware of.  The last couple
problems have been bugs in emacs itself.

New users please be aware of a couple things:

- You will want "tty" included in your CYGWIN environment variable
   setting, and probably "binmode".  Look at the following for some

- Emacs sometimes fails to detect subprocess exit.  This is a cygwin
   problem and should be fixed in the next release of cygwin.
