MSYS runtime 1.0.19 released

Dear MinGW / MSYS users,

The latest MSYS runtime, version 1.0.19, is now available.
You can upgrade using the mingw-get GUI as usual, but be advised to close all MSYS processes first.

New feature:

  • Generate /etc/fstab automatically in post-install.
    1) /etc/fstab is created if absent, with the correct mapping of the /mingw mount point.
    2) If /etc/fstab is present, it is not touched, but you can consult /etc/fstab.sample for a suggestion of a /mingw mount line.

This will help new users find the MinGW gcc compiler in the MinGW Shell PATH (bash console), right after a new MSYS installation.

Bug fix:

  • Correct a bug with pipe handling that affected parallel MSYS make
    ("make -jN", issue #1950).

This fixes a regression 1.0.17 -> 1.0.18. However, I still experience randoms hangs, even with 1.0.17, so it appears there still more work to be done.

Have fun!
