Version 1.4-1 of "chere" has been uploaded and should be available from 
mirrors shortly.

chere is a script allowing you to add Explorer context menus to start 
cygwin in the selected directory.

This script supports x86 and x86_64 simultaneously. If you have 32 and 
64 bit cygwin installed on the same machine, you can add separate 
context menu entries to start 32 or 64 bit terminals. The default menu 
text does not differentiate between 32 and 64 bit, so if you do this you 
should use the -e option.

* Use getent to identify the user login shell when the shell is 
unspecified or set as passwd
* Support fish shell

* Allow cd'ing to directories containing single quotes when using 
registry one-liners (-1)
