I have uploaded mintty 2.8.1 with the following changes:

Character display
   * Option Charwidth for built-in Unicode width or ambiguous wide mode 
(#88, #671).

Window and session control
   * Virtual Tabs: additional SessionGeomSync levels (#699).
   * Window icons can optionally be shown in session switcher (#699).
   * Restore window frame when leaving fullscreen mode via escape sequence.

Pathname handling
   * Relative pathname opening considers interactive working directory 
   * Pathname opening accepts escaped space or embedding quotes 
   * Relative pathname opening from WSL ignores improper directories 

WSL support
   * Made WSL parameter optional: --WSL.
   * Option --WSL supports legacy-only installation "Bash on Windows"
