[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: rxvt-unicode-X-7.7-6, rxvt-unicode-common-7.7-6

rxvt-unicode is clone of the familiar rxvt terminal emulator, that supports partially supports unicode, with a lot of caveats.

So why bother? See original announcement at

Changes since 7.7-5:

* Includes updated patch from Thomas Wolff for partial unicode support
  on cygwin.  unicode input is now possible in UTF-8 compliant
  applications, such as mined.
* Better documentation on how to set up your system for UTF-8
  in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/rxvt-unicode-X-7.7.README
* Now built with --enable-xim (but don't get your hopes up.  It was
  simply necessary for rxvt-unicode to work properly, even though
  there are (very few? none?) existing XIM servers ported to cygwin.)
* Also built with --enable-iso14755. With this support, in a UTF-8
  rxvt-unicode terminal (e.g. one in which LC_CTYPE was set to a UTF-8
  locale PRIOR to luanch) it is possible to enter multibyte characters
  hexadecimally.  Try: hold down LeftAlt+Shift, and press 2 0 a c. You
  should get the Euro symbol -- assuming your using a font that has the
  Euro glyph.
