rxvt-2.7.2-8 has been uploaded to the Cygwin net distribution.
rxvt is a lightweight xterm that can display to either X or 
native Windows. 

- Corrected backspace handling.  
  This may cause some unexpected behavior if you have something like 
     stty erase ^H 
  in your profile.  Either removing the stty line or changing it to 
     stty erase ^?
  may fix the behavior.

- Bug in erasing fixed.
  Previous versions erased too much, causing visual artifacts.

- Built with transparency enabled.
  This is bare bones support.  If you have Win2K with a tiled BMP
  background  (i.e. no active desktop), rxvt -ip may work.

Thanks to Christian LESTRADE for identifying and providing a patch 
for the backspace and erasing bugs.

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.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'cygutils' from the 'Utils' category.

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations.  This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.

In the US, ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Japan, ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/gnu/gnu-win32/ is usually

In DK, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is usually up-to-date.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
