packages have been updated in the Cygwin

There were no Cygwin-specific changes in this release.  This is a 
release to synchronize with the XFree86 release.

A note about fonts: The font packages *have* been updated to the 
fonts, however, the font package versions have not been changed. 
Leaving the font package versions unchanged means that users with 4.2.0 
fonts already installed will not have to download the new fonts, which 
are very large, while new installations will get the new fonts.  Anyone 
is free to "reinstall" the fonts packages, which will cause the newer 
packages (with the same version number, mind you) to be downloaded and 
installed.  The 4.2.0 fonts are compatible with the XFree86 
release; only in extremely limited situations would someone absolutely 
need the fonts.  Those people know who they are and are on their 
own for identifying themselves.  I have no further information about 
what scenarios, if any, would require the fonts to be installed.

I have downloaded and tested the packages.  Everything seemed to work 
fine.  No need to report your results to the list unless you run into

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to
your system.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'XFree86-xserv' from the 'XFree86' category.  You may need to
click the "Full" button if it doesn't show up.

Note that downloads from (aka aren't
allowed 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 Japan, is usually

In DK, is usually up-to-date.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
