Hi Cygwin friends and users,

I just released 1.7.14.  This is a bugfix release.  Only one new feature
has been added.

What's new:

- Add mouse reporting mode 1006 and 1015 to console.

Bug fixes:

- Allow access of /dev/conin, /dev/conout, and /dev/console if a console
  device is detected.

- Always allow nonexistent on-disk devices to be referenced even if they
  can't be open.

- Allow inheritance of special types like /dev/clipboard or /dev/urandom
  which do not have actual handles associated with them.

- Fix inode numbers of non-device files in virtual filesystems.

- Fix reporting large mouse coordinates in console window mouse reporting mode.

Have fun,
