Subject: Updated: xorg-x11-[xwin,xwin-gl]-
Date: Wed, 14 Apr 2004 00:45:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-x11-xwin-
*** xorg-x11-xwin-gl-


1) winmultiwindowwindow.c, winmultiwindowwndproc.c,
winwin32rootless.c, winwin32rootlesswndproc.c - Fix MWExtWM resource
leak.  (Kensuke Matsuzaki)

2) - Add missing documentation for command-line parameters.
(Rodrigo Medina)

3) - Rework some parts of the document, remove outdated
information, update other outdated information.  (Harold L Hunt II -

4) - New man page for .XWinrc file.  (Rodrigo Medina)

5) winengine.c - The fix reportedly in 6.7-3 for ShadowGDI being
forced when not required was not actually in that release; include
that fix in this release.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

6) winshadgdi.c/winActivateAppShadowGDI - Turn back on the manually
minimizing and restoring of our window when using the ShadowGDI engine
in fullscreen mode.  We perform the restoring or minimizing manually
for ShadowGDI in fullscreen modes so that this engine will perform
just like ShadowDD and ShadowDDNL in fullscreen mode; if we do not do
this then our fullscreen window will appear in the z-order when it is
deactivated and it can be uncovered by resizing or minimizing another
window that is on top of it, which is not how the DirectDraw engines
work.  (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

7) InitOutput.c - Adjust link to FAQ.  (Alexander Gottwald)

8) winkeybd.c - Fix rare segfault caused by uninitialized event
queue.  Happened if FatalError Messagebox appeared because of missing
font "fixed".  (Alexander Gottwald)

9) InitOutput.c - Fix segfault if LogInit fails.  (Alexander

10) winmsg.c, winmsg.h - New function winDebug which logs messages
with verbosity level 3.  (Alexander Gottwald)

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.
