The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-1.9.4-1
*** xorg-server-dmx-1.9.4-1

These packages contain XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.

In addition to upstream fixes, this contains the following cygwin-specific
changes since 1.9.3-2:

* In -wgl mode, handle failure to get any useful pixel formats for GLX
fbConfigs more gracefully: If we didn't get any pixel formats from
wglGetPixelFormatAttribivARB(), fall back to using DescribePixelFormat().  If
that doesn't give us any pixel formats, fallback to software rendering.
(Reported by Ken Olum)
* Decorate with WINAPI function pointers retrieved via GetProcAddress which
are currently missing it, so stdcall ABI is used.  This fixes a crash
currently seen when -screen option uses a size and monitor number e.g. -screen
0 1280x1000@2 (Reported by Markus Kurek)
