The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* cygwin-3.5.1-1
* cygwin-devel-3.5.1-1
* cygwin-doc-3.5.1-1

This is a bugfix release.


- Fix exit code for non-cygwin process running in console. The bug
  was introduced in 3.5.0.

- Make the interface names handled by if_nametoindex() and if_indextoname()
  consistent with that of if_nameindex().

- Revert error handling for non-Cygwin child processes to use Cygwin's
  error mode by default.  Resetting the error mode to the OS default
  error mode is now possible by using the new CYGWIN environment variable
  option "winjitdebug".

- Fix handle leak in pty master which occurs when non-cygwin process
  is started in pty.

- Fix the problem that VMIN and VTIME does not work at all in console.

- Fix a bug that cannot handle consoles more than 32, rather than 64.

- Fix gettimeofday not checking for a NULL pointer

- Fix two bugs in strptime, error checking of invalid numerical input and
  %p handling.

- Fix newgrp(1) group handling.  Only allow groups already in the user
  token, as Windows doesn't allow otherwise.

- Fix getgrent enumeration of local SAM accounts on domain member machines.
