I have updated cygrunsrv to version 1.21-1.
This release fixes a single bug introduced with 1.20-1 which results
in cygrunsrv-1.20-1 being non-functional. I removed the 1.20-1
release from the server entirely.
Other than that, 1.20/1.21 still introduces two new command line
switches and new functionality:
Starting with Windows Vista/Longhorn, the --preshutdown option
allows to terminate the service before the real shutdown takes
place, giving the service up to 3 minutes for its shutdown actions.
Only one of the --preshutdown/--shutdown options is allowed. If you
use --preshutdown on operating systems prior to Vista/Longhorn, it
will be silently converted to --shutdown at service runtime.
This option could be interesting especially for services which
have to do a lot of cleanup action. postgresql might be a good
-z, --shutsig <signal>
Optional signal to send to service application to stop the service
in case of a system shutdown. This is useful if your service
application wants to allow different actions to be taken on a normal
service stop and on system shutdown. Note that the --shutsig option
only has an effect if you use the --preshutdown or --shutdown option.
The default signal on shutdown is the termination signal set with
--termsig, TERM otherwise.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: firstname.lastname@example.org . I would appreciate if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly. This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
