The XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-32 'test' package has been updated in the Cygwin


Server source, direct link:
(131 KiB)

xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xwin (all files) diff against 4.3.0-31 source code:
(12 KiB)


1) win.h/WIN_CLIPBOARD_AUTH_SUPPORT - Disable the new Xauth support
for the clipboard integration manager with a build-time flag.  Be sure
to delete ~/.Xauthority if you have one; X Client connections may be
prevented if you do not delete this file.  (Harold L Hunt II)

2) InitInput.c/InitInput - Only wrap ProcVector[X_SetSelectionOwner]
when serverGeneration is 1, which prevents multiple wrapping of the
function when the server resets (the ProcVector table is not
re-initialized upon X Server reset).  (Harold L Hunt II)

3) InitInput.c/winProcSetSelectionOwner - Use ((DrawablePtr)
pWindow)->id instead of client->lastDrawableID for determining the ID of
the window that the selection is being owned by.  (Harold L Hunt

4) InitInput.c/winProcSetSelectionOwner - Detect when pWindow is
None, in which case the selection is being unowned in X11; add code to
release ownership of the Win32 clipboard if we currently own it.
(Harold L Hunt II)

5) InitInput.c/winProcSetSelectionOwner - Abort if IsWindow fails for
the clipboard manager Win32 window handle; this may prevent problems
when the X Server resets.  (Harold L Hunt II)

6) winclipboardwndproc.c/winClipboardWindowProc/WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD -
Don't call XSetSelectionOwner when GetClipboardOwner returns NULL,
since this means that the Win32 clipboard is unowned; there are many
reasons why the Win32 clipboard may be unowned, one of which is that
we release ownership of it when the X11 selection is unowned (see
above item).  (Harold L Hunt II)

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "XFree86"
and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.

utility or Cygwin/X in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin/X mailing
list is the appropriate place.
