mintty 0.9.2-1 has been uploaded. This is a maintenance release.

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.

- Implemented hexadecimal Alt codes for entering codepoints, as per
MS's interpretation of ISO 14755: Hold down Alt, press '+' on the
numpad followed by the hexadecimal character code, release Alt.
- Fixed a bug with Alt codes that caused them not to work if the first
digit was not entered quickly after holding down Alt.
- Reinstated support for opening relative paths in child processes
with Ctrl+click or the 'Open' command. (This requires the upcoming
Cygwin 1.7.8.)
- Avoided a crash that somehow was triggered by Cygwin's setup.exe
running postinstall scripts under some circumstances.
- Changed postinstall script so that it doesn't get confused by a link
called 'cygwin' in the root directory.

The mintty manual is installed as a manpage ('man mintty'). It's also
available at http://mintty.googlecode.com/svn/tags/0.9.2/docs/mintty.1.html.
