The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* emacs-auctex-13.1-1
* preview-latex-13.1-1

AUCTeX is an extensible package for writing and formatting TeX files in GNU 
Emacs.  It supports many different TeX macro packages, including AMS-TeX, LaTeX, 
Texinfo, ConTeXt, and DocTeX (dtx files).  AUCTeX includes preview-latex, which 
makes LaTeX a tightly integrated component of your editing workflow by 
visualizing selected source chunks (such as single formulas or graphics) 
directly as images in the source buffer.

preview_latex is a self-contained subpackage of emacs-auctex that allows 
appropriately selected parts of a LaTeX document to be formatted and displayed 
within the Emacs editor.  It also has uses that do not require Emacs.

This is an update to the latest upstream major release.  See the announcement at


for details.

Note: An alternative to installing this package is to install AUCTeX via
the Emacs package manager (ELPA) instead.  Simply do 'M-x list-packages <RET>' 
within Emacs, mark the auctex package for installation with 'i', and hit 'x' to 
execute the installation procedure

This alternative is in fact strongly recommended by the AUCTeX developers.  One 
advantage is that you will receive intermediate bugfix releases between major 
AUCTeX releases conveniently.  For example, version 13.1.1 is already available 
through ELPA.
