   * Link to Color Scheme Configurator in Options menu (#193).
   * Drag-and-drop and Store from Color Scheme Configurator (#193).
   * Drag-and-drop and Store from theme file on the web (#193).
   * Loading theme and bell sound resources also from XDG default config 
dir (#525), Windows AppData dir, or /usr/share/mintty.
   * Enabling cygwin path style for wave file configuration.
   * Size option -s is not persisted in config file on Save.

Text display:
   * Handling low-contrast of configured cursor colours more gracefully 
   * Tweaked manual underline to scale with font and avoid scroll glitches.
   * Manual drawing of VT100 line drawing graphics (#130, ~#551).
   * Fixed right-to-left mirroring of '('.
   * Not combining characters to unexisting glyphs.
   * Preventing mangled digit rendering if surrounded by certain scripts 
   * Preventing mangled combining characters by drawing them separately 
(~#553, #295).
   * Option WideIndic for double-width display of wide Indic characters 
(#553) (experimental).

Window handling:
   * Tweaked DPI changes to stabilize roundtrips of font and window size 
   * Option HandleDPI=false to disable handling of DPI changes (#547, #492).
   * Heuristic attempt to stabilize font size roundtrips after fullscreen.
