Mintty is the Cygwin Terminal emulator, also available for MSYS and Msys2.

Overview

For an introduction and features overview, see the Mintty homepage, also linking to the Wiki and the manual page.

Bugs and Enhancements

Please report bugs or suggest enhancements via the issue tracker.

Bugs that were reported to the previous repository at Google code before June, 2015, have been migrated here.

  • Mind! Before reporting an issue about character interaction with an application, please check the issue also with at least one other terminal (xterm, urxvt), and maybe the Cygwin Console. It may also be useful to get a proper understanding of the rôle of a terminal as explained e.g. in difference between a 'terminal', a 'shell', a 'tty' and a 'console'.

Contribution

If you consider to suggest a patch or contribute to mintty otherwise, discuss your proposal in an issue first, or on the Cygwin mailing list, or with the maintainer.
