I have updated the Cygwin/X xorg-server to 1.6.0 for Cygwin 1.7.

Please note the major upstream changes in this version:

* XEvIE extension support has been removed.  Therefore, libXevie and 
libxcb-xevie are deprecated and will soon be removed.

* In windowed (desktop) mode, -br (black background with mouse cursor 
hidden until XDefineCursor() is first called) is now the default.  The 
old behaviour can be obtained with the -retro flag.

The following new patches have been applied to this release:

* added Hebrew keyboard layout detection.

* added more clipboard debugging messages.

* fixed numeric keypad input.

* reverted upstream clipboard change that wreaked havoc with other 
applications monitoring the clipboard (e.g. MS Office Clipboard, VNC).

Together with a new release comes updates to some X.Org libraries:

inputproto  1.5.1
libxcb      1.2
libICE      1.0.5
libX11      1.2
libXext     1.0.5
libXfont    1.4.0
libXi       1.2.1
libXrandr   1.3.0
pixman      0.14.0
xcb-proto   1.4
xcb-util    0.3.4
xextproto   7.0.5
xtrans      1.2.3
randrproto  1.3.0

The newest versions of libX11 and libxcb are required for 
xorg-server-1.6.0, and they must both be updated to 1.2 simultaneously.

All other X.Org libraries, save those just deprecated, have been rebuilt 
for Cygwin 1.7 with gcc-4.3.
