New experimental versions of the emacs, emacs-X11, and emacs-el packages 
are now available for download for those testing cygwin 1.7, replacing 
the previous experimental 22.1-3 packages.  I have left 21.2-13 as current.

CYGWIN NEWS:
============
This is the first release in almost two years, after a maintainer 
change.  If no serious problems arise, I hope to make some version of 
emacs-23 the current version of emacs by the time Cygwin 1.7 is released.

There is one known bug: The cygwin build of emacs has problems getting 
the local time zone (see 
http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2009-02/msg00148.html).  This affects 
emacs functions like display-time.  A workaround is to set the TZ 
environment variable before starting emacs.  For example,

       export TZ=America/New_York

NEWS:
=====
This is an upstream pre-release for what will be emacs 23.1.  See

       http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/

for more information.

DESCRIPTION:
============
Emacs is a powerful, customizable, self-documenting, modeless text 
editor.  Emacs contains special code editing features, a scripting 
language (elisp), and the capability to read mail, news, and more 
without leaving the editor.
