At its core is an independent rewrite of MSYS, based on modern Cygwin (POSIX compatibility layer) and MinGW-w64 with the aim of better interoperability with native Windows software. It provides a bash shell, Autotools, revision control systems and the like for building native Windows applications using MinGW-w64 toolchains.

After installation.

After installation.
If you have some local msys2 mirrors, you have to manually edit the pacman.conf to add those server address.
Then run the command "pacman -Fy" to update the repo.
After that, you can install any packages you like, see here: Using packages · msys2/msys2 Wiki - https://github.com/msys2/msys2/wiki/Using-packages as a reference page.

Thanks.

Difference Between PackageVersion and DisplayVersion

Mike,
Looking here:

https://github.com/2wayne/MSYS2Portable/commit/1216ebd819b1ddc37f1e432ff...

What's the difference between PackageVersion and DisplayVersion?
Why wouldn't they be the same?

Another question I would like

Another question I would like to ask is how to change the language when I start the "MSYS2Portable.exe".
I'm currently on a Windows 7 64bit system(the system language is Chinese), when I start the "MSYS2Portable.exe", I see all the messages returned from the bash command line are shown in Chinese.

I see the file "appinfo.ini", there is a line:
Language=English

Are there any places I can set the languages?

Thanks.

EDIT, this problem is fixed, I just add a line
LANG=en_US
in the file \App\msys32\msys2.ini, then bash show all messages in English.
