The 'man' page suite, including man, apropos, and whatis consists of 
programs that are used to read most of the documentation available on a Cygwin 
system. The whatis and apropos programs can be used to find documentation 
related to a particular subject.

This is the first release of 'man' after I took over maintainership from
Christopher. The source code of this version was taken from a different
source location as the previous one. It is already suggested to go back
to the previous source code version. Nevertheless on my system 'man' and
corresponding utilities seem to work fine.

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.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Doc" and
then click on the appropriate field until the above announced version
number appears if it is not displayed already.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

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