The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* cygwin-3.1.5-1
* cygwin-devel-3.1.5-1
* cygwin-doc-3.1.5-1

This is a bugfix release, including a couple of nice to have changes
on top.

What changed:

- Support WSL symlinks.  Create those by default now.

- FIFOs can now be opened multiple times for reading.

Bug Fixes:

- Fix accidental evaluation of NUL (\0) characters in xterm console output.
  Don't move cursor to the right in case of a NUL character in the console
  output stream, this is not backed by terminfo.

- Fix a segfault when starting, e.g., mintty from a bash in a console
  running xterm emulation.

- Fix TIOCINQ to always return number of inbound chars if available.

- Fix error handling in raw disk writes and allow full disk writes
  including necessary locking on floppies as well.

- Fix several FIFO bugs.

- Make sure pseudo tty doesn't hang if cygwin-console-helper.exe is

- Fix a bug causing FIFOs to have incorrect permissions.
