[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: cairo-1.12.18-1, pixman-0.32.6-1

The following package has been updated for the Cygwin distribution:

* libcairo2-1.12.18-1
* libcairo-devel-1.12.18-1
* libcairo-doc-1.12.18-1
* libpixman1_0-0.32.6-1
* libpixman1-devel-0.32.6-1

Cairo is a 2D graphics library with support for multiple output devices. 
Currently supported output targets include the X Window System (via both 
Xlib and XCB) and image buffers, as well as PDF, PostScript, and SVG 
file output.

pixman is a library that provides low-level pixel manipulation features 
such as image compositing and trapezoid rasterization.  It is used 
primarily by the cairo library and the X server.

This is an update to the latest upstream bugfix releases.  Support for 
EGL contexts has been enabled in cairo.

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: mesa-10.3.3-1

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* dri-drivers-10.3.3-1
* libEGL1-10.3.3-1
* libEGL-devel-10.3.3-1
* libGL1-10.3.3-1
* libGL-devel-10.3.3-1
* libGLESv1_CM1-10.3.3-1
* libGLESv1_CM-devel-10.3.3-1
* libGLESv2_2-10.3.3-1
* libGLESv2-devel-10.3.3-1
* libglapi0-10.3.3-1
* libOpenVG1-10.3.3-1
* libOpenVG-devel-10.3.3-1
* libOSMesa8-10.3.3-1
* libOSMesa-devel-10.3.3-1

Mesa is an open-source implementation of the OpenGL specification, a 
system for rendering interactive 3D graphics.

This is an update to the latest upstream stable release, and enables 
direct software rendering (and hence OpenGL 3.0 and GLSL 1.30) by 
default.  If you had added "unset LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT" to your 
environment, you may now remove it, as that variable is no longer set by 
default.  Direct hardware-accelerated rendering (Windows-DRI) is still 
experimental in this release.

Complete documentation on OpenGL usage and configuration can be found here:

possible bug in libXt or libXaw

testing ncview
http://meteora.ucsd.edu/~pierce/ncview_home_page.html

I found, only on 64 bit, a segfault due to incorrect
widget (aka pointer) value.
It could be a software bug, but it looks to me
more a bug somewhere in the underlying libs

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: MATE Desktop 1.8.2

The following packages (and their subpackages) have been updated in the 
Cygwin distribution:

* atril-1.8.1-1
* caja-1.8.2-1
* caja-python-1.8.1-1
* engrampa-1.8.1-1
* eom-1.8.1-1

* mate-panel-1.8.1-1
* mate-settings-daemon-1.8.2-1
* mate-terminal-1.8.1-1
* mate-utils-1.8.1-1

The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides 
an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional 
metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.

To run the MATE desktop, install the mate-session-manager package and 
its dependencies, and either use the provided Start Menu shortcut, or:

echo "/usr/bin/dbus-launch mate-session" > $HOME/.xinitrc

and run 'startx' from the Cygwin prompt to launch.

This is an update to the latest upstream bugfixes for 1.8.  Please note 
that mate-terminal requires xorg-server 1.16.2-1 or newer to work in 
XWin -multiwindow mode.

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xorg-server-1.16.2-1


The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.16.2-1

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

In addition to upstream fixes [1][2], the following cygwin-specific 
changes have been made since 1.16.1-3:

* Use the modern clipboard viewer API, which doesn't require 
applications to maintain the clipboard viewer list, when available (on 
Vista and later)
* Log clipboard formats when GetClipboardData() fails
* Log name of owning HWND when OpenClipboard fails
* In multiwindow mode, add EWMH properties for describing multiple 
desktops to the root window (Thanks to Yaakov Selkowitz
for the patch)
* Fix a problem with logging using a format specifier with a variable 
field width or precision
* Default to -noresize when -fullscreen is used
* Propagate crashreporter exit code through the xorg-crashreport script

cygwin setup program questions

I have some elementary questions regarding the cygwin setup program. I ran the latest version 2.852 (64 bit).

the options are install / re-install / un-install / default

my understanding is as follows;

choosing "install" creates a new installation of the selected cygwin components

choosing "re-install" uninstalls the selected cygwin components, then creates a new installation

choosing "un-install" uninstalls the selected cygwin components

choosing "default" updates the selected cygwin components

so if I wish to update my local installation to the latest release, I would choose "default", as per the
following screen capture;

http://www.cpm86.com/default.jpg

What is the function of the "keep" / "cur" / "exp" radio buttons?

Please confirm my understanding of these four options. Thanks.
