Per Yaakov's email, I'm nominally the fzf maintainer for Cygwin, but
the upstream fzf project has abandoned the Ruby-based script and, in
doing so, native Cygwin support. Cygwin is currently stuck on 0.8.9
until someone either ports a Golang compiler to Cygwin, or starts
maintaining a fork of the Ruby version of fzf. Sadly I don't have time
The upstream project does have partial support for running fzf 0.17 on
Cygwin, by providing a Windows-native compiled 64-bit binary. That's
not supported by this mailing list, however – you'll need to go to the
upstream project if you hit any problems – and it has the very
significant limitation that it doesn't work with MinTTY.
