Subject: New package: xwinwm-0.0.5
Date: Sun, 11 Apr 2004 17:11:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The package 'xwinwm' is now available with the Cygwin


***EXPERIMENTAL*** Kensuke Matsuzaki's window manager for Cygwin/X to be 
used with the "-mwextwm" command-line parameter (not compatible with 
-multiwindow, -rootless, -nodecoration, nor with -fullscreen).

This window manager is not yet fully feature complete (e.g. resizing 
doesn't work) and is being released now only to allow people to test it 
and to get other developers interested in this project.  Some may find 
that xwinwm fits their current needs, but we make no guarantees and we 
recommend that you stick with 'XWin -multiwindow' for your stable systems.

NOTE: You *do* have to launch xwinwm just as you would have to launch 
twm in your startup script; XWin does not automatically launch xwinwm 
when you are using -mwextwm, though this feature may be added later.

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:

If you want to subscribe go to:

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.
