[1.7] Updated: cygwin-1.7.0-53

Hi folks,

I just uploaded a new Cygwin 1.7 test release, 1.7.0-53.

That's really the last test release.  Hopefully.

The two problems which had to be fixed are partially fixed now.

You know the drill by now, see the older test release announcements

Btw., the User's Guide is also available as PDF now:

What's new in contrast to 1.7.0-52

- Recognize non-NTFS remote filesystems which report to be NTFS as
  "cifs" filesystems and avoid to call potentially unsupported NT call
  in readdir().


- Don't just return EBUSY when trying to remove shared files on an NFS
  share.  Rather, really try to remove them first.

- Fix a typo in setlocale() which made the GBK charset disfunctional.

- Partially fix the FIFO regression reported in

- Fix a crash when trying to set long console title strings.

- Lower the memory usage of file descriptor data on the Cygwin heap.
  This avoids to allocate 64K chunks per file.  The new size is about
  250 bytes + 4 * path length.  This should fix the problem reported in

- Fix a problem in the destructor call order on process exit.

- Fix handling of incomplete UTF-8 sequences and rework UTF-16 surrogate
  pair handling in mbrtowc() to be more bullet-proof.  Check for invalid
  Unicode valus beyond 0x10ffff.


- Q: How do I know that I'm running Cygwin 1.7.0-53?

  A: The `uname -v' command prints "2009-07-30 18:01"

Have fun,
