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.
Mintty is based on code from PuTTY by Simon Tatham and team.

CHANGES
=======
This release fixes a single issue: font names with non-ASCII
characters weren't read correctly from the config file, thus causing
settings such as MS ゴシック (MS Gothic) to be ignored.

QUESTIONS
=========
