The XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-48 package has been updated in the Cygwin


Server source, direct link:
(139 KiB)

xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xwin (all files) diff against 4.3.0-47 source code:
(67 KiB)


1) winprefs* - Rename the WINMULTIWINDOWPREFS structure to WINPREFS,
since it is used even when MultiWindow mode is disabled.  (Harold L
Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

2) winmultiwindowclass.c, winmultiwindowclass.h,
winmultiwindowicons.c - Identify these files for renaming since they
are not dependent upon MultiWindow mode being enabled.  Do not perform
the actual rename; instead, write this message in hopes that someone
else performs the rename in CVS in a manner that preserves
history.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

3) win.h, winclipboard.h, winwindow.h - Remove WIN_*_SUPPORT flags.
(Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

4) xc/config/cf/ - Remove the inclusion of;
including forced us to have several lines of code that
prevented drivers from being compiled, and forced us to define values
for certain #defines so that they would not be overridden.  Removing and restructuring the file led to a decrease in size of
about 30%.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

5) xc/config/cf/ - Add the build flags removed from win.h in
the form BuildXWinFoo.  Add defines for the various build options,
such as XWIN_FOO, which are added to the defines passed to the
compiler when building the server.  This allows us to remove the build
flags from the hw/xwin headers and it also allows us to refer to the
BuildXWin* flags in Xserver/Imakefile, which means that we should no
longer have to update that file by hand when enabling and disabling
certain features.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

6) General - The above changes required extensive rewriting of, which means that I may have accidentally broken or disabled
something that was working previously.  Please verify that things work
as they should.  Note that removing causes 'xdpyinfo' to
report our vendor string as "The X.Org Group" and our vendor release
number as "6600"; this is different from the previous vendor of
XFree86 with version or some such.  (Harold L Hunt II -
