The XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-49 package has been updated in the Cygwin


Server source, direct link:
(140 KiB)

xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xwin (all files) diff against 4.3.0-48 source code:
(29 KiB)


1) winclipboardwndproc.c, winclipboardwrappers.c,
winclipboardxevents.c - Check if clipboard is already open before
calling OpenClipboard; if it is open and we own it, then call
CloseClipboard in hopes of fixing some reported deadlock situations.
(Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

2) InitOutput.c - Add check for multiple instances of XWin trying to
run on the same display number.  Check for uniqueness among all
terminal services sessions.  (Takuma Murakami, Harold L Hunt II)

3) winvalargs.c - Validate command-line argument combinations; fail
when invalid combinations are found, such as "XWin -query foo_host
-multiwindow".  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

4) winerror.c/winMessageBoxF - Add a function that works like printf
for Win32 message boxes.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

5) winprocarg.c/winLogVersionInfo - Print version, vendor, and
mailing list email address in the log file.  (Harold L Hunt II -

6) winprocarg.c/winLogCommandLine - Concatenate the command line into
a single string with line breaks at 60 characters.  Print the command
line in the log file and save it for winMessageBoxF to use during
FatalError and ddxUseMsg calls.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

7) winerror.c - Make FatalError popup a message box telling the user
that a fatal error occurred, where the log file is, what version they
are running, what the command line used to start XWin was, etc.
(Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

8) InitOutput.c/ddxUseMsg - Popup a message box telling the user that
the help information was save to the log file, tell them where the log
file is, what the command line used to start XWin was (in case they
don't realize they typed -help or an invalid parameter name), etc.
(Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

9) Xserver/os/utils.c, xdmcp.c - Replace several calls to ErrorF and
exit(1) with calls to FatalError; this allows us to present the user
with a popup message box, whereas the exit(1) call prevented us from
doing this.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

10) InitOutput.c/ddxUseMsg - Document Alexander's new -xkb*
parameters.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

11) config/cf/ - Specify our own vendor string, version
number, and contact information.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

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.
