Version 1.4-1 of "ssh-pageant" has been uploaded.

ssh-pageant is a tiny tool for Windows that allows you to use SSH keys
from PuTTY's Pageant in Cygwin and MSYS shell environments. You can
use ssh-pageant to automate SSH connections from those shells, which
is useful for services built on top of SSH, like SFTP file transfers
or pushing to secure git repositories.
ssh-pageant works like ssh-agent, except that it leaves the key
storage to PuTTY's Pageant. It sets up an authentication socket and
prints the environment variables, which allows OpenSSH connections to
use it.
