ConTeXt no longer available on Cygwin
Wed Mar 22 16:56:49 GMT 2023
As I mentioned in the announcement of TeX Live 2023, there has been a
major change in ConTeXt; see
Briefly, ConTeXt development has been moved out of TeX Live into a
separate project. Unfortunately, the maintainer of that project decided
to remove Cygwin support, so I cannot easily provide a context binary.
One Cygwin user of ConTeXt complained upstream, to no avail.
At some point I will probably remove the texlive-collection-context
package, which is now useless. But I am waiting to see how other
distros are going to deal with this change.
If you will be greatly inconvenienced by the absence of a context
binary, please let me know by replying to this message. There may or
may not be anything I can do about it.
