[ANNOUNCEMENT] TeX Live 2019




Cygwin's TeX Live packages have been updated to the latest upstream release, TeX 
Live 2019.

TeX Live provides a comprehensive, cross-platform TeX system.  It includes all 
the major TeX-related programs, macro packages, and fonts that are free 
software, including support for many languages around the world.  For more 
information, see

   http://www.tug.org/texlive/

And see

   http://www.tug.org/texlive/doc/texlive-en/texlive-en.html#news

for a list of changes since TeX Live 2018.

The TeX Live executables and supporting libraries are contained in the following 
Cygwin packages:

* texlive-20190509-1

* libkpathsea6-20190509-1
* libkpathsea-devel-20190509-1

libkpathsea is a TeX file and path search library.

scientific text.

In addition, upstream TeX Live provides thousands of "packages", grouped into 
"collections".  There is a Cygwin package for each upstream collection; there 
are also Cygwin packages containing documentation for some of the collections.

Recommendations
===============
Most people do not need the full TeX Live installation, which is huge and can 
take a long time to install.  If you're not sure what you need, here are some 
possible ways to start:

Minimal: Install texlive and its dependencies.  This provides plain TeX but not 
LaTeX.

Basic: Install texlive-collection-latex and its dependencies.  This is a minimal 
installation with LaTeX.

Small: Install texlive-collection-latexrecommended and its dependencies.  This 
provides the most commonly used non-graphics LaTeX packages.  Install 
texlive-collection-pictures if you want the standard graphics packages too.

Medium: Install texlive-collection-binextra, texlive-collection-context, 
texlive-collection-fontsrecommended, texlive-collection-fontutils, 
texlive-collection-latexrecommended, texlive-collection-luatex, 
texlive-collection-mathscience, texlive-collection-metapost, 
texlive-collection-plaingeneric, and texlive-collection-xetex.

Fontconfig
==========
There is a script /usr/bin/texlive-enable-fontconfig that you can run if you 
want the fonts distributed with TeX Live to be available to applications that 
rely on fontconfig.  See /usr/share/doc/texlive/README.Cygwin for more details. 
(The script can take a few minutes to run, so be patient.)

tlmgr
=====
texlive-collection-basic includes a restricted version of the tlmgr (TeX Live 
Manager) utility.  See /usr/share/doc/texlive-collection-basic/README.Cygwin for 
more details.
