New Package: run, Updated: X-startup-scripts, X-start-menu-icons
The run utility has been moved from X-startup-scripts to a new package.
run.exe will start console programs and hide their console. This is useful for
creating desktop shortcuts to XWin, xterm or using ssh for windows ssh clients.
The X-startup-scripts and X-start-menu-icons packages have been updated to
use the new run package.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the
http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your system. Save it
and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'run' from the 'Base' category.
If you've already installed the X-startup-scripts or X-start-menu-icons package
then 'run' will already be selected. Otherwise click on the 'skip' field next to
'run' until '1.1.5-2' is displayed.
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't allowed due
to bandwidth limitations. This means that you will need to find a mirror which
has this update, please choose the one nearest to you:
