The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin net distribution:

*** xorg-server-1.5.3-3

These are the changes in this release:

* Log changes:
- - In addition to the XWin logs now being found in /var/log (as of the
last release), now a separate log is created for each display.  THE
DEFAULT LOG LOCATION IS NOW /var/log/XWin.0.log, when run as "X :1" the
log will be /var/log/XWin.1.log, etc.
- - The -logfile flag argument may contain "%s" (w/o quotations) to have
the display number automatically substituted; e.g. "XWin :2 -logfile
~/tmp/XWin.%s.log" will create ~/tmp/XWin.2.log.
- - The verbosity of the logfile and the console output should now match.

* The messages about /tmp/.X11-unix creation and ownership are silenced.

* Multiwindow mode fix:
- - Windows which remember their placement don't drift with each instance.

* Multihead fixes:
- - Windows don't appear offscreen when the primary monitor is not
- - XWin dialogs are placed near the tray icon so that they don't end up
in the middle of the virtual desktop, possibly split between two monitors.

* Numerous clipboard fixes, including a fix for clipboard startup with

* Built-in fonts are used in addition to server-side fonts.  The default
font has changed as a result, but the full selection of fonts is still
available if installed.

* Temporary disabled the NumLock/CapsLock synchronization due to several
bug reports.
