TeX Live provides a comprehensive, cross-platform TeX system. It 
includes all the major TeX-related programs, macro packages, and fonts 
that are free software, including support for many languages around the 
world. For more information, see


This update is primarily a rebuild of the TeX Live binaries to remove 
the dependence on the obsolete libicu55.  I've also taken the 
opportunity to make two minor changes:

1. I've applied an upstream patch to fix a bug involving euptex 

2. I've moved the fontconfig configuration file for the TeX Live fonts 
from /etc/conf.avail (now deprecated) to /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail.

This means that users who have previously run the 
/usr/bin/texlive-enable-fontconfig script will have to re-run it.  See 
/usr/share/doc/texlive/README.Cygwin for more information about this script.
