Hi

A new version of 'xemacs' has been uploaded to a server near you.


DESCRIPTION:
============
A powerful, highly customizable open source text editor and application 
development system


CYGWIN NEWS:
============

* Build with cygwin-1.5.7

* Removed --with-dragndrop from configure line

  This option prevented some W32 processes (notibly Opera/IE/Netscape) from exiting
  when XEmacs was still running

* Workaround for the warning message

    "Couldn't find an obvious default for the root of the
     XEmacs hierarchy."

  at Xemacs startup. Obviously it *finds* all of its files

* Added a copy of sample.init.el,a sample XEmacs initialization script, to
  /usr/share/doc/xemacs-21.4.14
  See the comments at the start of the file for more information

* Removed empty /etc/postinstall directory from binary distribution

* Added crypt and minires as dependencies in setup.hint

* Removed cygipc from build dependencies in xemacs.README


INSTALLATION:
=============
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.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up
the above mentioned package from the 'Editors' category.


DOWNLOAD:
=========
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

These mirrors already got the package, the others will probably have 
the latest version of this package fairly soon:

In the US

       ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/pub/sourceware/cygwin/ 

has reliable high bandwidth connections.


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