To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "X11"
and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.

Since the packages are marked as test you will need to select them 
all manually or use the "Exp" switch located above the package listing.
This will select all Test packages for installation (most likely non
xorg-x11-* packages too) which you can deselect in the "Partial" view
(click twice on the partial button)

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror. already has these
