rxvt is a terminal program that can be used instead of the windows
command shell.  It does not require an X server.

Geoff Wing has recently released rxvt 2.7.10, a development version
that disables features which provide security holes.  He has also
merged the cygwin specific code into the sourceforge rxvt project.

This build has more options enabled in the configuration, including:
 --enable-frills --enable-keepscrolling --enable-old-selection 
 --enable-utmp --enable-wtmp --enable-lastlog --enable-linespace

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.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Shell" 
then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin at cygwin dot com .  I would appreciate it 
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.  Though for rxvt specific bugs you may want
to copy me on posts to the Cygwin mailing list.
