Hi Cygwin friends and users,
I just released Cygwin 1.7.24. This is an update to get Emacs work
better with the latest version of glib. Please note that the next
version of Emacs will require this version of Cygwin!
ABOUT THE 64 BIT RELEASE
This is only the third official Cygwin release which is publically
available as a 64 bit version for AMD64 Windows systems, so it's still
Right now the 64 bit Cygwin distribution doesn't come with as many
packages as the 32 bit version, but it's as stable as the 32 bit version,
and more packages will be available over time.
If you're already running a 32 bit version of Cygwin on 64 bit Windows
machines, you can continue to do so. If you're planning a new install
of Cygwin on a 64 bit Windows machine, consider to use the new 64 bit
Cygwin version, unless you need certain packages not yet available in
the 64 bit release.
To install 32-bit Cygwin use the new http://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe
To install 64 bit Cygwin use the new http://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe
- Allow application override of posix_memalign.
See the thread starting with my uninformed post of
asking for the details.
