I've updated the version of zsh to 4.0.6-5.

This version has many, many fixes from the base Zsh team, about 640 lines
in the ChangeLog.  The 4.0.4-4.0.6 changelog is here:
http://www.fruitbat.org/Cygwin/zsh/ChangeLog

My notes on setting up zsh are here:

Some additions for Cygwin:
- Fixed packaging error which caused many text files in the binary
  distribution to have DOS-style line termination.
- Fixed CDPATH bug where having root ("/") in CDPATH didn't work.
- Added a default zprofile.  This will be copied to /etc/zprofile if
  there is not already a /etc/zprofile.  This is a correction from the
  4.0.6-1 release which simply overlayed /etc/zprofile.
- New command, mkzsh, to create a default /zsh.bat file and create Desktop
  and Program Menu items.  Sorry, no man page (yet), but mkzsh --help works :)
- Added some command completions for some of the Cygwin commands:
  cygcheck     getfacl      passwd
  cygpath      mkgroup      ps_cygwin
  dumper       mkpasswd     setfacl
  These are very basic and hopefully will be improved upon later.
- Added more sample functions and startup scripts from the distribution.
  These are in /usr/doc/zsh-4.0.6/Functions and /usr/doc/zsh-4.0.6/StartupFiles

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.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Net" and  
then click on the appropriate field until the above announced version
number appears if it is not displayed already.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  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.
