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 routine update.

CHANGES (since 0.3.5-1)
- Added a manual page: 'man mintty'. It documents all the options and
keycodes and also has a section with tips on MinTTY usage. Big thanks
to Lee D. Rothstein for his help with this.
- Added command line options for initial window size and position:
--size and --pos.
- Straightened out some inconsistencies in MinTTY-specific keycodes
(which are now documented in the man page).
- Fixed crash when encountering unknown long command line option.
- Fixed mousewheel overreporting
- Fixed incorrect encoding of modifier keys on mouse events.
