Sorry it took me a while to get back to this. No, I got hung up on some
1.5 vs. 1.7 issues, and never released the 256-color version. But I've
just spend some more time on it, and put together new packages for
Cygwin 1.5 and 1.7, with 256-color support. I'm uploading these and you
should see them shortly.
However: (1) I haven't tested the 256-color support on many terminals
yet, and (2) I've had to abandon my Cygwin 1.5 installation, so I can't
test the 1.5 package at all. So, for now I'm releasing these as test
packages. Once I get some reports from users about how well the
256-color support is working, I'll make them current. I'm including
instructions in the README file for running screen with 256 colors and
testing whether it's working.
