The XEmacs team are proud to announce the availability of a self
binary kit of XEmacs 21.1.13 for Microsoft Windows, native and Cygwin 1.1.x
The kit is located at ftp://ftp.xemacs.org/pub/xemacs/windows/setup.exe
all the usual mirrors.
This release is different to other releases in that it is supplied through
a `net' installer which will download and install the components you select
over the internet. The installer is based on the cygwin installer. The
release supports binaries for both native Windows (95, 98, NT & W2K) and
for Cygwin 1.1.6 or greater as well as all the relevant XEmacs packages.
I'm eager to try this cygwin release, but the installer isn't working
for me. My workstation is behind a firewall with separate http & ftp
proxy servers. IE's web proxy server is set to
, port 80, while the ftp proxy works through
tfproxy followed by 'USER remoteuser＠remotesite'. I've tried both
'use IE settings' and 'use HTTP/FTP Proxy'; both cases fail when the
program begins to download individual packages.
Am I out of luck, or is there something I can do?
