[ANNOUNCEMENT] [1.7] Updated: cygutils-1.4.0-1

Cygutils is a collection of useful(?) tools for the cygwin
platform. This is a feature enhancement release.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

This is the first release from the cygwin-1.7-specific 
development branch (cygutils-1.4.0 will no longer compile
on legacy versions of cygwin; it requires functions noly
added in the newer cygwin kernels).

CHANGES (from cygutils-1.3.4-10)
* Support in cygstart for unicode arguments/filenames
  (from IWAMURO Motonori).
* First release from cygwin-1.7-specific branch. 
  cygutils-1.4.0 and above require functions not present
  in cygwin-1.5 and earlier. Legacy systems should use
  the BRANCH_1_3_x branch tag.
* All applications that have a --version option now
  report the package version number with uniform format.
* All code reformatted to follow (mostly) GNU standards.

TODO (call for patches):
* Update and mkshortcut.c to use cygwin-1.7 cygwin_conv_path
  instead of deprecated cygwin_conv_to_win32_path.

* Update (some?) utilities to handle unicode filenames, similar to
  IWAMURO Motonori's work on cygstart. Which utilities need this?
  mkshortcut and lpr, probably. Any others?
