Hi all,

I just wonder what is the current status of terminals for X in Cygwin. I currently use xterm, but I've seen people using rxvt and mrxvt. Also, I heard that rxvt is actually currently supported in Cygwin, something that xterm apparently isn't.

"support" is relative. There's apparently no X maintainer, so no updated packages. On the other hand, while I respond to xterm issues(*) on this and other lists, I don't recall _ever_ seeing support from rxvt's maintainers on this list.

(*) aside from obvious ones - setting the font is an example that's best
done via the manpage.
