[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: mintty-0.3.8-1

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 minor feature update.

CHANGES (since 0.3.7-1)
- Added -e option for introducing the command to execute. This is for
compatibility with other terminals, and makes mintty work with 'chere'
again. (It worked in 0.3.5 only due to a bug in option handling.)
- Added window menu command for duplicating the current session, with
shortcut Alt+F2. This simply invokes mintty again with the same
command line.
- Added support for xterm control sequence to change the ANSI colours.
(The Linux console's version of this was supported already.)
