I have uploaded mintty 2.7.8 with the following changes:

Font rendering
   * Support for alternative fonts as selected via ECMA-48 SGR codes 
   * Tweaked ambiguous width checking to not expand glyphs excessively 

Terminal features
   * SGR 6 attribute "rapidly blinking" (ECMA-48).
   * Fixed Cursor Position Report (CPR) in Origin Mode (DECOM) (vttest 6-3).
   * DEC Technical character set support (approximating some segments).
   * G2/G3 character set designations and GL mapping (vttest 3-10 GL cases).
   * G2/G3 character set single shift selection (vttest 3-11).
   * Resetting invoked character set to G0 on terminal reset.
   * CHT (move right n tab positions) (vttest 11-5-4).
   * Completed Status String (DECRQSS) with missing attributes.

Window handling
   * Suppressing Windows-caused side effects of "resizing" to current 
size (#629).
   * Tweaked window-raising to top (previous #652) to not stick on top 
(mintty/wsltty#47, #667).
   * Reverted capturing of Shift+Ctrl+0 (~#233) to enable language 
switching (#663).
   * Capture key after leaving system menu with ESC; insert it and 
prevent beep.

   * Reverted to stripping CR from most configuration strings
