This release is identical to the previous release, 2.3.1-1, except that it
includes the dependency on the perl-Stow package, which was missing in just
the previous release I believe. So if you installed stow for the first time
in the last release, it might not have worked for you. That's fixed now.
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.
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 of the questions.
