[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: terminfo-5.5_20061104-1

The terminfo package has been updated to version 5.5_20061104-1. It contains the terminfo database that enables proper operation of ncurses-based applications. Normally, the terminfo database is distributed WITH ncurses; but we've split it out to enable updates on an accelarated schedule.

o Resync'ed with 20061104 patchlevel of ncurses-5.5
o Switch to cygport build framework
o Lots of improvements from upstream
  + support for xterm-, gnome-, rxvt-, and putty- 256 color modes
  + support for 16- and 256- colors in GNU Screen terminals
  + See /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/terminfo-*README for complete changelog
