[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xorg-server-1.16.0-1 (TEST)


The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.16.0-1

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

This is the first release of the xserver 1.16 series.  It is currently 
available as a test release, and will be made stable in approximately 
two weeks, if no major regressions are reported.

Please try test releases and report problems to the Cygwin/X mailing 
list.  Testing helps ensure good releases!

Unfortunately, the upstream announce mail [1] does not contain a full 
changelog since 1.15, so you will need to consult the changelog or git 
for a list of upstream fixes and improvements.

There are no (intentional) cygwin-specific changes since 1.15.1-4.

XWin cursor huge on one computer but normal on another

I primarily work on my workstation which has four 1080p monitors (three 
on the bottom with the fourth at center top) and for the longest time I 
thought that it this was a configuration error on my part; and perhaps 
it still it.

The issue is that on my worksation, the cursor is huge and is sometimes 
even cropped for being too large. This is especially noticeable for 
applications like xterm and gedit.

I think it might be a DPI or scaling issue due to my large screen size, 
however I've always explicitly defined "-dpi 96" in my xinit.

I had thought that this was a known bug and hadn't thought much about it 
until I pulled up gedit on my laptop where I saw that the cursors were 
all fine. I thought that maybe I had different packages but even after 
copying my entire cygwin directory and startup scripts over, on my 
laptop it still shows cursors no larger than the default Windows size.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks,

Matt D.

keyboard problem with mwm and window done with Motif

Hello,

I run with command line on my Windows 7 Xwin.exe in rootless mode. After I
run the window manager: mwm.exe and finally I launch an application in a
Red-Hat Server which use window done in Motif and Qt.

With Qt windows the Keypad of my Keyboard works well (All the keyboard is
OK) in a xterm too but with Motif windows is different: All seems to be well
except 0.  When I want to make 0 with the keypad, nothing appear, it's Ok
with 1,2,3,4 etc ... but not with 0.

Have I forgotten to configure a file or file(s) have bad configuration?  

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Isabelle

Resize a Cygwin64 xterm on Windows 7 64-bit jumps in increments of two or three columns

I have run Cygwin on multiple versions of Windows including recently on
Windows XP and don't think I ever had this problem. Resizing or
specifying a geometry always resulted in the exact number of columns
requested, with increments of 1 column being available when dragging the
borders of a window to resize.

Now, after upgrading to Windows 7 64-bit, I cannot get the window to
have 80 columns on resize. It jumps in increments of two or three,
depending on the number of columns prior to resizing. For example:

$ tput cols 
66 

xx50283 <at> PP75W9D0R1 ~ 
$ tput cols 
69 

xx50283 <at> PP75W9D0R1 ~ 
$ tput cols 
71 

xx50283 <at> PP75W9D0R1 ~ 
$ tput cols 
73 

xx50283 <at> PP75W9D0R1 ~ 
$ tput cols 
75

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 release, with a number of new
features.

Until now, OpenGL has been handled solely with indirect rendering,
meaning that libGL passes calls over the GLX protocol to the server,
which then handles the rendering with hardware acceleration in
multiwindow/-wgl mode, or software rendering (swrast) in desktop/-nowgl
mode.  The major drawback of this method is that the GLX protocol only
supports OpenGL 1.4, anything which requires 2.0 or newer (such as GLSL)

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: glib2.0-2.38.2-3

The following packages have been updated for the Cygwin distribution:

* libglib2.0_0-2.38.2-3
* libglib2.0-devel-2.38.2-3
* libglib2.0-doc-2.38.2-3

GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects
such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C,
portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as
an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.

This update removes a threading workaround which is no longer necessary
with Cygwin 1.7.31.
