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 for either. 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.
