mintty 1.1.2-1 is on its way to the Cygwin mirrors.

- Fixed buffer overflow in processing of the control sequence for
querying font coverage.
- Tweaked double-click word selection algorithm to handle shell
variable references such as $FOO and %FOO%, and also exclamation marks
in URLs.
- Changed clicks-place-cursor feature to respect application cursor
key mode when sending left/right arrow keycodes.

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 is also
available at http://mintty.googlecode.com/svn/tags/1.1.2/docs/mintty.1.html.
