After closing half of the open issues, I thought it’s a good time to 
release mintty.
I’ve bumped the major version number to 2 to reflect the change of 
repository and maintainer and somehow catch up with cygwin...

Major new features and fixes are listed below. See also the changelog in 
the Wiki
For new options, there is no GUI configuration facility yet ("Hidden 
settings"). Please ask for them if desired.
