Updated: msys-bash-3.1.23-1

Cesar Strauss
Dear MSYS users,

The MSYS port of GNU Bash was updated to version 3.1 patchlevel 23.

The changes are:

* Includes Shellshock fix.

* Don't load user32.dll for every shell process (issue #1824).
   Thanks to Kirill Smelkov.

* New component: msys-bash-lnk (issue #2001).
   Thanks to Keith Marshall.

   It can create a shortcut to msys.bat on the desktop and start menu.

   From the mingw-get GUI, just select the msys-bash-lnk component. If
   it doesn't work, check:

   Eventually, this will be done automatically when installing MSYS.

   Alternatively, from the command line, run:

     mingw-get install --start-menu --desktop msys-bash-lnk

   See also: mingw-get --help

   You can also edit <mingw-root>/var/lib/mingw-get/data/preferences.xml
   and change the shortcut creation defaults.
