[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: Cygwin 1.7.13
Thu Apr 5 15:27:00 GMT 2012
Hi Cygwin friends and users,
I just released 1.7.13. This is mainly a bugfix release, especially
to fix two braindead bugs I introduce in 1.7.12. Two new features
crept in, though.
- mkpasswd and mkgroup now try to print an entry for the TrustedInstaller
account existing since Windows Vista/Server 2008.
- Terminal typeahead when switching from canonical to non-canonical mode
is now properly flushed.
- getpass(3) now reads from and writes to/dev/tty in the first place,
and only falls back to stdin and stderr if opening /dev/tty fails.
- Fix a bug in execve, which results in wrongly handling arbitrary
Cygwin executables as native, non-Cygwin executables.
- Fix a bug in the new /dev code which disallowed to create files
under /dev, even if /dev is backed by an existing /dev directory
on disk. This could result in misbehaving postinstall scripts.
- (Hopefully) fix a bug in /etc/passwd code which could result in
reading unrelated home path entries when accessing the "unknown
user account" entry (account name "????????").
