GNU emacs 21.2-11 is available.

Changes:

- optimized size of unexec()'d emacs binary for better fork() performance
- recompiled all LISP files (-9 did, but -10 did not, and that may have caused
   problems reported by a couple users)

New 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

                *** INFORMATION ON UPDATING CYGWIN ***

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

In the US,
ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Germany,
ftp://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/pc/gnuwin32/cygwin/mirrors/cygnus/
is usually pretty good.

In the UK,
http://programming.ccp14.ac.uk/ftp-mirror/programming/cygwin/pub/cygwin/
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
then you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
mirror.

The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and will install newer packages automatically.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  This includes ideas and comments
about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.
