GNU emacs 21.2-10 is available..


- implemented unexec(); startup should be much faster

This is a major feature -- the emacs binaries now have the startup
LISP code loaded into the binaries instead of having to load them
at runtime.  Please let me know if you have problems.

New emacs users please be aware:

- You will want "tty" included in your CYGWIN environment variable
   setting, and probably "binmode".  Look at the following for some
   documentation: http://www.cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using-cygwinenv.html
