New releases of the emacs, emacs-X11, and emacs-el packages (23.2-3) are
now available. These are rebuilds of the 23.2-1 packages, with D-BUS
support. I've also fixed a build glitch that caused some functions to
be missing their documentation strings
(http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=7127). The test releases
23.2-2, in which the D_BUS support didn't work, have been removed,
leaving 23.2-1 as previous.
There is a known bug in the cygwin build of emacs, which affects emacs
functions like display-time. See /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/emacs.README for
details and a simple workaround.
Install the emacs-X11 package if you want to use the X11 GUI. You can
then type 'emacs&' in an xterm window, and emacs will start in a new window.
If you run emacs in the cygwin console, be sure that your CYGWIN
environment variable (http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/setup-env.html)
The script /usr/bin/make-emacs-shortcut can be used to create a shortcut
for starting emacs. The shortcut starts emacs under X if an X server is
running and in a mintty window otherwise. Edit the shortcut and/or the
script if you want different behavior.
You will need the cygutils package to run the script, and you will need
mintty and run2 to use the shortcut. In addition, the user who runs the
script needs to be able to write to /usr/local/bin.
See http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/ for a summary of new features
since Emacs 23.1. You can also use the command 'C-h n' within emacs to
browse the NEWS file.
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.
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. Then run setup and answer all the questions.
