ncurses is a package that provides character and terminal handling 
libraries, including 'gui-like' panels and menus.  It is often used 
instead of termcap.

CHANGES since 5.4-2:
o Update to latest release with current patchset (20060318)
o Compiled using settings to ensure ABI compatibility
   with cygncurses-8.dll [*]
o Fixed bug in tput.exe described here:
   (thanks, Samuel Thibault)

[*] forthcoming ncurses 'test' packages will turn on additional (new) 
features in the 5.5 series, but break ABI compatibility (and will 
therefore necessitate a DLL package version-bump).
