[ANNOUNCEMENT] autossh 1.4f-1

autossh 1.4f-1 is now available in Cygwin.  According to the upstream changelog

"Version 1.4f incorporates a number of changes and fixes to signal handling and
exit conditions. The most notable changes are that it will exit properly when
killed while waiting between ssh restarts, and it will now restart rather than
exiting when the child ssh process is killed."

autossh is a program to start an instance of ssh and monitor it, restarting it
as necessary should it die or stop passing traffic. autossh monitors connections
by sending data through a loop of port forwardings, and checking that the data
returns.  autossh backs off on the rate of connection attempts when experiencing
rapid failures such as connection refused.  It includes an NT service mode,
which works well for unattended operation as an NT system service using
