The terminfo package has been updated to version 5.3-3. It
contains the terminfo database that enables proper operation
of ncurses-based applications. Normally, the terminfo database
is distributed WITH ncurses; but we've split it out to enable
updates on an accelarated schedule.
CHANGES (since 5.3-2)
o added 'el' (erase-to-end-of-line) definition for 'TERM=cygwin'
terminal definition (cgf)
Note that you do NOT need to update to the test releases of ncurses or
the cygwin kernel to use this terminfo package. In case you were wondering.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and update the terminfo package.
Note that we have recently stopped downloads from sources.redhat.com
(aka cygwin.com) due to bandwidth limitations. This means that you
will need to find a mirror which has this update.
In the US,
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.
In the UK,
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.
If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
then you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
