Hi

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


DESCRIPTION:
============
An online lexical reference system


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

* Update to latest upstream release
* Excluded redundant documentation in HTML, PDF and PS format


WordNet NEWS
============

1 - Database files all follow Unix naming convention.  Index files are
index.pos and data files are data.pos where "pos" is:

noun
verb
adj
adv

2 - Hyponyms are now classified as either generic or INSTANCES, as
indicated in search output.

3 - Troponyms can be "full" or "brief" in graphical browser.  The
"brief" search was not available in graphical browser (wnb) but was in
command line interface (wn).

4 - Graphical browser now has a selection under "Options" to save the
current display and search output options settings as user's default
settings.  These settings will be used by default whenever the user
runs the interface.

5 - Many pertainyms in "adj.pert" have been replaced with
morphosemantic links.

6 - Windows version now uses registry variables to save path to
database and user options:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WordNet\2.1\WNHome - Installation home
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\WordNet\2.1\wnres - Graphical interface
					       display options

7 - All nouns are in one tree under "entity" in "noun.Tops".

8 - WordNet URL is now "wordnet.princeton.edu"

    
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 'Text' 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.
