The XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-45 package has been updated in the Cygwin


Server source, direct link:
(136 KiB)

xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xwin (all files) diff against 4.3.0-43 source code:
(35 KiB)


1) win.h, winmultiwindowwindow.c, winmultiwindowwndproc.c,
winscrinit.c, winwindow.h - Improve move, resize, minimize, maximize,
and restore operations on windows in multiwindow mode.  Reorganize
message/event flow, add new scheme to propagate window changes between
Windows and X layers, eliminate bunch of conditional branches and
cache variables.  A couple of bugs should be fixed.  (Takuma

2) winmouse.c - Properly clear the internal mouse button map when the
mouse device is closed.  (Takuma Murakami)

3) winmultiwindowwndproc.c, winprefs.c, winprefs.h, winwndproc.c -
Stop passing customized menus to DefWindowProc.  Although it does not
cause visible problems so far, it should be inhibited.  Apply a mask,
which is described in MSDN, for wParam in
winTopLevelWindowProc/WM_SYSCOMMAND handler.  (Takuma Murakami)

4) winconfig.c, winconfig.h, winprocarg.c - Add some xkb settings
(rules, model, layout, variant, options) to the commandline options
and parse them even with configfile support turned off.  (Alexander

5) xc/lib/font/fontfile/dirfile.c, encparse.c, fontfile.c - Some more
font path checks.  (David Dawes)

6) winmultiwindowwm.c - Make MultiWindow Window Manager detectable
from other wm's as well as allowing it to detect other wm's.  (Takuma

7) xc/lib/font/fontfile/dirfile.c - Fix an exploitable buffer
overflow.  (Greg MacManus (iDEFENSE Labs))

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.

Please send questions or comments to the Cygwin/X mailing list at:

I would appreciate if you would use this mailing list rather than
emailing me directly.  This includes ideas and comments about the setup
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.
