A new version of stow, 2.2.0-1, is available in the Cygwin distribution.
This is a new upstream release, with many new features and bug fixes since
the last Cygwin release, version 1.3.3-1.  You can read the upstream
changelog at http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/stow.git/tree/NEWS.

stow manages the installation of local software packages by creating sets
of symlinks from the installed location (e.g. /usr/local) to a stow
directory (e.g. /usr/local/stow/emacs) where the real files live.  This
allows you to keep packages separate, while making them appear to be
installed in the same place.
