The following package has been updated in the Cygwin net distribution:

*** xwinwm-0.0.5-2

I have rebuilt xwinwm for modular X11, with a small patch to fix
compilation with gcc-3.4.  It requires xorg-server-1.5.3-5, released today.

- From the original announcement in 2004:

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.
