[Resending with corrected Subject.]

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* texinfo-6.1-1
* info-6.1-1
* texinfo-tex-6.1-1

Texinfo is a documentation system that uses a single source file to 
produce output in a number of formats, both online and printed (dvi, 
html, info, pdf, xml, etc.).

This is an update to the latest upstream release.  See the release 
announcement 
(http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-texinfo/2016-02/msg00035.html) 
for a list of changes since the last release.

Cygwin packaging
================

The info package contains the standalone info viewer as well as the 
install-info program.  The texinfo package contains everything else 
except support for the printable output formats (such as pdf).  The 
texinfo-tex package supplies the latter.  In particular, 
/usr/bin/makeinfo is in the texinfo package, but the command 'makeinfo 
--pdf' won't work unless you install texinfo-tex.

This release of the info package also contains a postinstall script that 
was previously in the _update-info-dir package, which is now obsolete.
