There's at least one serious bug left in 2.2.2, namely that
lilypond-book doesn't work correctly on LaTeX documents when
run in Cygwin.

What happens is that lilypond-book copies the header of the LaTeX file
and adds a small dummy body that is run through latex to figure out what
the line width is. The problem is that there is no such thing as
/dev/stdin in Cygwin, so the command
latex "\\nonstopmode \input /dev/stdin"
breaks which results in the setting linewidth=0pt in the .ly file
so all the music ends up on a single long line without any line breaks.

Example file:

\score{\notes\relative c'{
  \repeat unfold 10 { c d e g }

LilyPond 2.2.2 is out.  It has a number of small bugfixes, so upgrade
if any of these errors concern you.

After looking through the bugs again, lily is now almost BugFree:
The only essential 2.2 bugs now left in cvs are:
 Fixed in 2.3, soon to be backported
 Something changed here, but the bug is still there.
The code gives a warning in 2.3 cvs, but it still gives incorrect output. Is this intentional?
