[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: screen-4.0.3-1

screen-4.0.3-1 is now available in the 'current' release of the Cygwin
distribution.  This version was previously released in the 'experimental'
release.  No one has posted any trouble reports, and the package works fine
for me, so I've now moved it into current.

screen is a terminal multiplexer and window manager that runs several
separate 'screens' on a single physical character-based terminal.  Each
virtual terminal emulates a DEC VT100 plus several ANSI X3.64 and ISO 2022
functions.  You can create multiple windows with any programs in them, kill
the current window, switch between windows or copy text between them, view a
list of active windows, rename windows, view the scrollback history, etc.
You can detach your session and even log out if you wish; your programs will
keep running, and you can reattach later, maybe when logged in from a
different host.

Test reports for screen, either positive or negative, are still welcome on
the cygwin list.  Please include your OS version and terminal type (DOS,
rxvt, xterm, etc.).

screen has been reported to work well inside the following terminals
in Cygwin:


Inside a DOS console, screen works, but in order to be able to reattach
detached sessions, ** you must set "tty" in the CYGWIN environment
variable before you open the console **.  Please see
/usr/share/doc/screen/README.Cygwin for more information about this.



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.
