A new release of m4, 1.4.10b-1, is available, replacing 1.4.10-1 as current.

NEWS
====
This is a new upstream release.  It is marked as a beta release upstream,
but I think it is worth promoting to current right away because of the
speed increase it offers to autoconf.  (It helps that I'm the upstream
developer, and did my development primarily on cygwin ;)

See also /usr/share/doc/m4-1.4.10b/.

You must rebuild from source if you want the experimental changeword
feature enabled, as using it can slow down normal operation, and since it
will disappear from the eventual m4 2.0.

DESCRIPTION
===========
m4 is an implementation of the traditional Unix macro processor. It is
mostly SVR4 compatible although it has some extensions (for example,
handling more than 9 positional parameters to macros). GNU m4 also has
built-in functions for including files, running shell commands, doing
arithmetic, etc.

UPDATE
======
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 'm4' from the
'Interpreters' 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, please choose the one nearest to you:

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