> Dear Cygwin Community,
> Thanks to your support and feedback, I am pleased to announce the
> commercial availability of Cygwin 1.0. As you know, Cygwin is a
> UNIX/Linux shell environment and portability layer
> enabling delivery of
> open source projects to Windows. You already use Cygwin to help
> integrate Windows into your UNIX-based environment and migrate
> applications from UNIX to Windows.
> With the new enhancements included on the CD (see
> for more details), you can now easily review info files
> and man pages.
> In addition, the CD contains a more UNIX-like layout that has been
> discussed and recommended by the community. The compiler
> our Code Fusion technology which includes optimizations
> for the Intel
> Pentium family of processors. I am also pleased that this release
> contains our graphical debugger, Insight.
> The best news is that soon (on October 15) I will be offering the
> community a chance to get the new CD and docs for $20 off
> the "street
> price" or $79 (USD).
> Here's how you get it: go to http://www.cygnus.com/cygwin
> , click on the
> "Buy Cygwin" link. On the "SHOP CYGNUS" main page, under
> the Cygwin
> section, click on "Community Offer." The password is
> "SHELL" - and that
> will tag the order for the special price.
> Again, this will not be available until October 15.
> You'll have to
> wait until then to order.
> We are calling this version of Cygwin version 1.0 but it
> is essentially
> B21. It comes with a number of additional binaries from
> a standard
> net release. Currently, the additional tools are not mentioned on
> the web site but they soon will be. Until then, I've
> attached a list of
> the additional binaries in the "contrib/bin" directory to
> this message.

> not part of

> I'm excited about this Cygwin offering and can't wait to
