A new version of screen, 4.1.0-20130513-1, is available in the Cygwin
distribution, both 32 and 64 bits.

This is the same version that was released two weeks ago, but it's now been promoted to current, so you won't have to
specifically choose it in setup.exe/setup64.exe any more.  I've been using it without any problems, and no one has
reported any problems to the list, so it's time to promote it.  The previous release, 4.0.3-7, is still available in the

screen is a terminal multiplexer and window manager that runs several separate
'screens' on a single physical character-based terminal.  Each virtual terminal
emulates a DEC VT100 plus several ANSI X3.64 and ISO 2022 functions.  You can
create multiple windows with any programs in them, kill the current window,
switch between windows or copy text between them, view a list of active windows,
rename windows, view scrollback history, and more.  You can detach your session
and even log out if you wish; your programs will keep running, and you can
reattach later, maybe when logged in from a different host.
