The Cygwin "x2x" packages (source and binary) have been updated to version 
1.30-2.  This is merely a "maintenance" release necessitated by recent 
changes to the Cygwin includes.  No features or bug fixes have been applied.


Allow me to quote from the x2x-1.30 man page:

x2x  allows the keyboard and mouse on one ("from") X display to be used
to control another ("to") X display.  Since x2x uses the  XTEST  exten-
sion, the "to" X display must support XTEST.

If  x2x  is built under Cygwin (on Windows XP or Windows 2000) then the
-fromwin option may be specified to allow the "from" display to be  the
Windows  desktop.  (The  Cygwin build also supports use of an X display
for the "from" screen). Use of -fromwin sets the default  behaviour  as
if the -big -west -capslockhack options had also been given.

Unless the -nosel option is specified, x2x relays X selections from one
display to the other. (If -fromwin is specified then the X selection is
relayed to and from the Windows clipboard as text strings).


1) Visit and click on the "Install Cygwin Now" link to
  download setup.exe to your system.
2) Run setup.exe and make you way to the "Select Packages" screen.
3) Find the "X11" category and expand it by clicking the "+" symbol.
4) Find the "x2x" package and click (repeatedly if necessary) in the
  "New" column until "1.30-2" appears.
5) Check the box(es) in the "Bin?" and/or "Src?" columns to choose the
  binary and/or source package(s) respectively.
6) Proceed with the install by clicking the Next button.

[Note that it may take up to 24 hours from now for the various mirrors to 
sync up with the new version, so if you don't see 1.30-2 when you run setup, 
try again later.]
