The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:
These packages contain XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.
In addition to upstream fixes , the following cygwin-specific changes have
been made since 1.10.1-1:
* Use system() rather than pipe() & fork() to invoke xkbcomp. This should
work around the X server being unable to startup with "Failed to activate core
devices" error when cygwin's fork() emulation is unable to work successfully.
(Launching applications from the tray menu still uses fork() and might still
fail on problem systems, and other cygwin programs might still fail to fork(),
but hopefully this will prevent these problems from being reported as an X
server issue quite as much). (This should make Cygwin/X FAQ 9.15 obsolete)
* Automatically activate the -nolock option if /tmp is on a FAT filesystem.
(This should make Cygwin/X FAQ 2.3 obsolete)
* Automatically activate the -emulate3buttons option if less than 3 mouse
buttons are reported. Add -noemulate3buttons option so this can be reversed.
* To facilitate testing of llvmpipe/softpipe, if the GALLIUM_DRIVER env var is
set, load the swrastg rather than swrast rasterizer.
* In -wgl mode, create a new dispatch table, rather than modifying the
existing one to avoid a GLX crash.
