The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* texinfo-6.0-1
* info-6.0-1
* texinfo-tex-6.0-1

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/2015-06/msg00052.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.
