[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: mintty-0.3.7-1

MinTTY is a terminal emulator for Cygwin with a native Windows user
interface and minimalist design. Its terminal emulation is largely
compatible with xterm, but it does not require an X server to be
running. It is based on code from PuTTY 0.60 by Simon Tatham and team.

This is a compatibility update.

CHANGES (since 0.3.6-1)
- The Home and End keys now send "PC-style" ^[[H and ^[[F instead of
VT220-style ^[[1~ and ~[[4~. This is for compatibility with xterm's
default configuration and the xterm termcap/terminfo entries, which
means that Home and End should work out-of-the box now in bash, i.e.
configuring them in ~/.inputrc is no longer necessary.
- The Reset menu command and the ^[c ('Full Reset') control sequence
now clear the scrollback as well as the screen.
- The manual page has gained a tip on using 'sh -c' for setting
environment variables in mintty shortcuts.
