The following package has been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* vttest 20200420

Tests the functionality of a VT100 terminal (or emulator thereof). It
tests both display (escape sequence handling) and keyboard.
The program is menu-driven and contains full operating instructions. To
run a given menu-item, you enter its number. You can run all menu-items
(for a given level) by entering an asterisk, i.e, '*'.

It has been enhanced to support and test many xterm control and status
escape sequences, and it is mainly used nowadays for testing emulator

Latest changes include:

+ improve test-coverage for REP/SD/SL/SR/SU, exercising default params.

+ improve DA/DA2 reports for VT125, VT240, VT382, VT510 used in xterm.
