I have uploaded mintty 2.8.5 with the following changes:

Character handling and rendering
   * CJK brackets are expanded if needed to ensure their symmetry (#756).
   * Support of emoji style text attribute SGR 51/52 (mintty/wsltty#82, 
   * Fixed emoji display variation selector handling.
   * Character Info displays emoji sequence short names 
(mintty/wsltty#82, #600).
   * Reverted Sixel colour registers patch that could fail Sixel display 
or even stall mintty window (#740, mintty/wsltty#90).

   * Reenabled Ctrl+key escape sequences (#743).
   * Input optionally keeps selection highlighting 
(ClearSelectionOnInput=false) (#222).

Mouse handling
   * Reenabled drag-and-drop text selection on focussing at a threshhold 

   * Alt+F2 and mintty --dir=... stay in selected dir even in login mode 
(#500, #744).
   * Fixed option --dir=...
   * Context menu configuration (MenuMenu etc): new flags 'x' and 'u' 
   * More layout-tolerant colour value syntax (#758).
   * Invocation as wsl*[-distro].exe implies a --WSL[=distro] parameter 
   * Added missing option `mintheme --list`.
   * New mintheme options --file (#762) and --query.
   * New option ClearSelectionOnInput=false disables selection highlight 
clearing on input (#222).

Window handling
   * Clear selection when clipboard content updated (#742).
   * Skip refresh after colour setting if nothing changed (e.g. by prompt).

Desktop integration
   * WSL mount point configuration (/etc/wsl.conf or fstab) is 
considered in path conversion for open/paste (mintty/wsltty#91).
   * Workaround for ConEmu WM_MOUSEACTIVATE bug (#724).
