mintty 0.9.4-1 is on its way to the Cygwin mirrors. This is a
maintenance release.

- Reinstated flow control with ^S and ^Q, following protests. Hence
the stty command to enable it in 0.9.3 is no longer needed. The 'stty
-ixon' command can be used to disable flow control again and make ^S
and ^Q available for other functions.
- The 'ixany' terminal flag is set instead, which tells the terminal
driver to restart output on any input character rather than just ^Q,
thus still stopping users from "hanging" their terminal.
- Tweaked the layout and wording of some options. Renamed the 'Output'
pane to 'Terminal'.

Mintty is a terminal emulator for Cygwin with a native Windows user
interface and minimalist design. Among its features are Unicode
support and a graphical options dialog. Its terminal emulation is
largely compatible with xterm, but it does not require an X server.

The mintty manual is installed as a manpage ('man mintty'). It's also
available at http://mintty.googlecode.com/svn/tags/0.9.4/docs/mintty.1.html.
