The following package has been upgraded in the Cygwin distribution:

* vttest 20200920

Tests the functionality of a VT100 terminal (or emulator thereof).
Tests both display (escape sequence handling) and keyboard.
The program is menu-driven and contains full operating instructions.
To run a given menu-item, you enter its number. You can run all
menu-items (for a given level) by entering an asterisk, i.e, '*'.

It has been enhanced to support and test many xterm control and status
escape sequences, and it is mainly used nowadays for testing emulator

20200920 changes include:

+ add test for xterm's 1016 pixel-coordinates mouse-mode.
+ add "-q" option to display only the most recent part of a response,
  e.g., for any-event mouse tests.
+ remove obsolete MANIFEST, dist, dist-shar makefile targets, since
  those are done by external scripts.
+ updated/improved configure macros, i.e., for compiler-warnings
