[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: tcsh-6.15.00-4

I've uploaded a new tcsh version 6.15.00-4 to

What's new in 6.15.00-4?

- This version is supposed to solve problems with DOS lineendings when
  using tcsh as login shell.  A typical problem are broken or hanging
  rsync calls with tcsh as (remote) login shell.

  The problem is that Cygwin's tcsh up to 6.15.00-2 is using textmode on
  input so far.  This version drops all changes to the underlying mode.
  Instead, CR's on input are ignored when reading commands.

- tcsh identifies the system finally correctly as a Cygwin system.


    $ echo $version | cut -d " " -f 5
    $ echo $OSTYPE $HOSTTYPE
    posix i386


    $ echo $version | cut -d " " -f 5
    $ echo $OSTYPE $HOSTTYPE
    cygwin i386-cygwin

- /etc/profile.d/complete.tcsh is now not a Cygwin specific file,
  but the standard file from the upstream sources.  It has a working
  completion for Cygwin's mount/umount commands now.

- The default files under /etc are now installed into /etc/defaults and
  only copied to /etc by the postinstall script if they don't already

- A preremove script which removes dangling symlinks.

- The Cygwin specific tcsh installation files are now part of the
  upstream sources.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
