The package 'xorg-x11-xwin-gl' is now available with the Cygwin


X server for Cygwin with ***EXPERIMENTAL*** GLX acceleration.

Contains a new binary called XWin_GL.exe (/usr/X11R6/bin/XWin_GL.exe) 
that contains the experimental GLX acceleration, which was written 
mostly by Alexander Gottwald after Harold L Hunt II (myself) pointed out 
a vague description of the approach to take.

Note: This server will not magically be invoked on your system just 
because you installed it.  As noted above, this feature is experimental 
(and only works in -multiwindow mode last I checked) so we are going to 
bar those from testing it that can't figure out how to invoke it on 
their own; if you have to ask for help getting it running, then we don't 
want you running it yet.

Thanks to Torrey Lyons for answering my questions when I was trying to 
figure out what it was that we needed to implement.

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, 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.
