I've just updated the version of shutdown to 1.5-1.
This version has some bugfixes plus two new features:
On Windows NT systems, shutdown now uses InitiateSystemShutdown to start
system shutdowns and reboots. This function has several advantages.
It allows to specify a time until shutdown, it opens a dialog in each
user's session that a shutdown is in progress, it adds an entry to the
event log and last but not least, unless you specified a too short time
period, it allows to abort the shutdown by calling the AbortSystemShutdown
Consequentially, this version of shutdown adds a new option:
$ shutdown --abort (or just -a)
which (on NT only) allows to abort a shutdown in progress. This, too,
opens a dialog window in each user's session to inform the users that
the shutdown has been aborted.
Other than that, `shutdown --help' gives you all information you need.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
