mintty 1.1.1-1 is on its way to the Cygwin mirrors. This is a feature release.
- Turned up brightness of ANSI bold blue by a couple of notches.
- Allow colours in settings to be specified in X-style hexadecimal
formats such as #RRGGBB or rgb:RR/GG/BB (rather than just comma-
- Re-rendered the program icon in true colour rather than 256 colours,
with proper alpha channel.
- Fixed a bug where the background erase colour wasn't being updated
when a saved cursor was restored, which caused problems with custom
vim colour schemes.
- Implemented xterm's private mode 1006 for encoding mouse events,
which unlike the other three existing encodings includes the button
number in button release events.
- Fixed off-by-one error in encoding of mouse coordinates in urxvt's
private mode 1015.
- Tweaked mouse handling to make it easier to select a single
- When the right click action is set to extend the selection, a left
click with Shift pressed now pastes the clipboard instead of extending
the selection, as in rxvt.
- Improved handling of VK_PACKET messages, which tools like AutoHotKey
or AllChars use to send characters, so as to accept characters outside
the system's ANSI codepage.
- Tweaked RTF clipboard output to make it work in Lotus Notes.
- Fixed some xterm incompatibilities regarding saved cursors and the
alternate screen: origin and autowrap mode should be saved with the
cursor, and the alternate screen shouldn't have its own cursor, scroll
margins or insert mode.
- Log output can now be sent to standard output by specifying a dash
instead of a filename.
- Fixed rough display of some bold fonts, e.g. Consolas.
- Stopped selection from moving when the active screen is scrolling
while looking at the other screen (via the Flip Screen command).
- Added manifest spell to keep the Program Compatibility Assistant
- Changed compiler options to build for i686 rather i586, and optimise
for speed rather than size.
- Mintty now is built using gcc 4.5 rather than 3.4, and tuned for the
Atom processor (because Atom's in-order architecture should have most
to gain from this).

Mintty is a terminal emulator for Cygwin with a native Windows user
interface and minimalist design. Among its features are Unicode
support and a graphical options dialog. Its terminal emulation is
largely compatible with xterm, but it does not require an X server.
The mintty manual is installed as a manpage ('man mintty'). It is also
available at http://mintty.googlecode.com/svn/tags/1.1.1/docs/mintty.1.html.
