Binary distributions of GNU Emacs, made from its official, unmodified
source code (either released versions or development snapshots).
The goal is to promote the use of this great software package by
removing the barrier that could represent the task of building the
For now, the binaries are only for MS-Windows platforms. See the file
'etc/mingw-build-recipe.txt' for details on how these builds are made.
Each binary distribution contains exactly what "make install" produces
. Therefore, even though they have support for some optional
libraries , the binaries of those libraries are not bundled. See
the file 'share/emacs/VERSION/README.W32' (from the binary package)
for instructions on setting up a working runtime environment.
Old archives might be removed at some time, to free up storage.
--- Footnotes ---------
 But for MS-Windows builds, the file "bin/emacs-VERSION.exe" is
removed from the package in order to lessen its size. That file is
just a copy (not a link, like in GNU/Linux builds) of "bin/emacs.exe"
for a given version, so you may re-create it locally if you want.
