[ANNOUNCEMENT] New: msys-ncurses 6.0

Erwin Waterlander
Hi,

A new package is available: msys-ncurses 6.0.

This package is not installable via mingw-get, but needs manual
installation. You can download the files from:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/MSYS/Contributed/ncurses/ncurses-6.0-2/

Only narrow text is supported (no wide text (Unicode)).

This library can be used for msys applications in the mintty terminal
emulator. msys-ncurses will not work in Windows consoles like Windows
Console, Console(2), ConsoleZ, or ConEmu.


To run msys in mintty type:
msys.bat -mintty MSYS

or for a mingw32 environment:
msys.bat -mintty MINGW32

regards,

You can now install msys-ncurses, msys-libncurses, and msys-terminfo
with mingw-get.

msys-ncurses does work in Console/ConEmu when you set environment
variable TERM to cygwin:
export TERM=cygwin
but this is with limitations. For instance special characters, like line
drawing characters, will not be correctly displayed. Also resizing may
not work as expected. In mintty everything works fine (using
TERM=xterm).
