An updated version of zsh (zsh-4.3.10-1) and the latest development drop
(zsh-4.3.10dev2-1) has been released and should be at a mirror near you
real soon.  These are upstream releases.

NOTICE:
=======

Version 4.3.10 was released in late 2009, but had been failing on several
of the regular tests under Cygwin.  I've been waiting for a newer release
to come out to hopefully address these issues, but to date no newer
release had materialized.  However, recently Zsh released the latest
Developer drop so I felt it was time to finally release 4.3.10 for
Cygwin.  I've built the original 4.3.10 (with its flaws) as well as the
newest Developer drop (4.3.10-dev-2), which has many fixes since 4.3.10,
but also has several flaws.  I've set the Developer release as the Test
release and should you have problems with 4.3.10, I encourage you to try
the Test release instead.

I have noticed some strange cases where hangs sometimes happen with
subshells and file re-direction.  If you encounter these, please report
them with a test case.

As with the 4.3.9 release, these releases of Zsh are built with FIFO and
Multi-byte/Unicode support enabled.  See Announcement for 4.3.9 for
additional details.

DESCRIPTION:
============
Zsh is a UNIX command interpreter (shell) usable as an interactive login
shell and as a shell script command processor.  Of the standard shells,
zsh most closely resembles `ksh' but includes many enhancements.  Zsh has
command line editing, builtin spelling correction, programmable command
completion, shell functions (with autoloading), a history mechanism, and
a host of other features.
