The XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-37 'test' package has been updated in the Cygwin


Server source, direct link:
(134 KiB)

xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xwin (all files) diff against 4.3.0-36 source code:
(14 KiB)


1) InitOutput.c, win.h, winclipboardthread.c, winwndproc.c - Remove
the winDeinitClipboard function since it is no longer needed due to
the OsVendorReset function.  (Harold L Hunt II)

2) winclipboardxevents.c/winClipboardFlushXEvents - Move variable
declarations into the event loop so that they are reinitialized for
each event that is processed.  Remove all calls to pthread_exit and
replace them with an abort section in each event that frees allocated
resources and sends a SelectionNotify message when the
SelectionRequest event is being aborted.  Make sure that
CloseClipboard will always be called if OpenClipboard has been called.
Review the entire function to make sure that the responses to failures
are appropriate.  The result of this audit is that the clipboard code
should not shut down as often from encountering minor errors.  (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.
