There was no new announcement for csih, right?  So you can safely
assume that nothing new happened.  0.9.5-1 is still in the "test"
category, so you don't get it by default, but you can download it via
setup.exe for testing.

Since there was no new Cygwin release, you can just as safely assume
that the change is only available in the developer snapshots.  Just
give it a try.
