[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: mintty-0.9.7-1

mintty 0.9.7-1 is on its way to the Cygwin mirrors.

- Fixed crash when scrollback size is set to zero.
- NT4 support is officially gone. It had been broken since version
0.6.1 anyway, without anyone complaining.
- When the window is held open after the shell finished and no more
processes are attached, hitting Enter or Escape will now close the
- Changed the optional Ctrl+Shift shortcut for closing the window from
Ctrl+Shift+Q to the more standard-compliant Ctrl+Shift+W.
- Added config file versions of command line options: Class, Hold,
Icon, Log, Title, Utmp, Window, X, Y.
- Multiple-choice settings are now written with named values rather
than integers, e.g. CursorType=block instead of the rather non-obvious
CursorType=0. Similarly, Boolean settings are written as 'no' or 'yes'
instead of 0 or 1. Integer values of course remain supported for
backward compatibility.
- String settings no longer have arbitrary length restrictions.
- Unknown settings and invalid values now trigger warnings.

Mintty is a terminal emulator for Cygwin with a native Windows user
interface and minimalist design. Among its features are Unicode
support and a graphical options dialog. Its terminal emulation is
largely compatible with xterm, but it does not require an X server.

The mintty manual is installed as a manpage ('man mintty'). It's also
available at
