You'll have to ask Cygwin about that. As far as I know they lag
stable releases by at most a couple of weeks. I haven't heard any
recent complaints about the configuration they distribute, although
about a year ago there was a complaint that it was X11 only (ie, you
had to install an X server). I believe that was resolved by
configurating the Cygwin release for both X11 and Windows displays.
(Again, asking Cygwin is the way to be sure.)
To the best of my knowledge the XEmacs Cygwin installer is not up to
date with XEmacs (it is advertised as 21.4.13, volunteers to pick up
the slack welcome), and depending on exactly what the state of your
Cygwin installation is, it may not be compatible with your Cygwin,
either. (The cost of keeping up with Cygwin is one of the reasons why
we don't do it.)
For third-party distributions, I strongly recommend that you either
use their distribution of XEmacs, or build your own.
