Update: chere-0.5-2

chere is a Cygwin package to manage Shell Here functionality.
It adds items to the Explorer Drive and Directory context menus. The named
shell is started in the selected drive/directory when the menu item is chosen.

If, like me, you're paranoid about your Registry, chere can display what it
would do rather than actually do it. It can also report what shells have been
added to the context menus, and the associated keys.

Finally, chere can remove any context menu items it has created.

Please consult the man page for details on usage (man chere).

Changes (since 0.4-1 (test))
 * Add install for for current user
 * Improved key handling for install/uninstall
 * Man page added

Known issues

The default zsh and tcsh startup scripts are in the process of being updated to
work with chere. In the meantime these shells will start in the home directory
instead of in that desired.

chere adds an uninstall item to the Windows Control Panel for each shell context
menu you add using chere. This feature relies on chere, and as such does not
work after chere itself has been uninstalled. If you have context menus and plan
to remove Cygwin, uninstall the context menus before you uninstall Cygwin :)
