The following package has been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* vttest    20220827

Tests the functionality of a VT100 terminal (or emulator thereof).
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
compatibility.

for details of changes since the last Cygwin release.

  of test results now handle zeroes in status results.

  strerror.
