Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows. It consists of two parts:
# A DLL (cygwin1.dll) which acts as a Linux API emulation layer providing substantial Linux API functionality.
# A collection of tools which provide Linux look and feel.

What Can Cygwin Do?

With Cygwin, administrators can login remotely to any PC, fix problems within a Posix/Linux/UNIX shell on any Windows machine, and run shell command scripts. Sophisticated shell command scripts can be created with standard shells, such as sed or awk. Standard Windows command line tools can even be intermixed within the UNIX/Linux shell script environment to administer the Windows system. Over the years, UNIX/Linux system administrators have developed a large toolbox set of management scripts for their UNIX/Linux machines. Cygwin provides the ability to continue using these scripts on Windows machines.

Why Use Cygwin?

One of the largest problems developers face today is supporting their applications on disparate platforms. Windows workstations continue to be added to an environment already populated by Linux and other UNIX-based Operating Systems. Using Cygwin, developers can manage heterogeneous environments in a consistent, efficient way. Cygwin provides a standard UNIX/Linux shell environment, including many of its most useful commands to the Windows platform, so IT managers can effectively deploy trained staff and leverage existing investments in UNIX/Linux source code and shell scripts.
Release notes: New Release
TE Support the "e" flag to fopen(3). This is a Glibc extension which allows to fopen the file with the O_CLOEXEC flag set.
TE Support the "x" flag to fopen(3). This is a Glibc/C11 extension which allows to open the file with the O_EXCL flag set.

Fixes:
TE Prevent CTRL-S hang.
TE Revamp signals so that signals-to-threads more closely mimic Linux
TE operation.
TE Revert to only creating a new session leader when we know that a
TE console process is started in the background.
TE Fix mysterious crashes when accessing /etc.
TE Fix a potential race condition starting multiple "first" Cygwin processes
TE concurrently.
TE Fix a bug in unlink/rmdir which could result in removing non-empty
TE directories on network drives. Also fix problems trying to rename files
TE under newer Samba versions.
TE Prefer to call WSARecvMsg from recvmsg if possible.
TE Correct hang typified by running "procps" after Cygwin has started a
TE Windows process.
