   12 -------------

   14 - cygcheck and strace now always generate output with Unix LF line endings,
   15   rather than with DOS/Windows CR LF line endings.
   16 
   17 - fork now preserves the load order of unrelated dlopen'd modules.
   18 
   19 - pthread_cond_wait now acts like Linux and BSD: Resume waiting for the
   20   condition variable as if it was not interrupted, rather than returning 0.
   21 
   22 - The internal <sys/_locale.h> header was renamed to <xlocale.h> for
   23   source compatibility with other systems.
