The completion system changed and is much more usable but your
question was too general and the changes were too many to answer this
sufficiently. The main difference between /your/ old zsh (Amol's zsh)
and your new one is that cygwin's zsh is a vanilla/Unix zsh and Amol's
was a "hacked" Windows one.
