Current cygwin version 1.7.31 unfortunately includes just the old
version 5.2.12-1 of the text utils package "multitail".
The current multitail version is 6.2.1 according to the developer's
web site http://www.vanheusden.com/multitail/ which gets rid of a lot
of bugs (e.g. weird characters being displayed if files contaings
hard-coded tab characters).

Would it please be possible to integrate a newer multitail version in
one of the upcoming cygwin versions!

Many thanks for a fantastic tool(-set) and all your effort!
