[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xorg-server-1.15.0-2 (TEST)

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.15.0-2

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

This is the first release of the xserver 1.15 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!

The following cygwin-specific changes have been made since 1.15.0-1:

* Fix a crash which could occur when a GL client exits without deleting it's
GL contexts
* Don't create fbConfigs for un-accelerated pixelFormats provided by the
generic renderer.  (This is a workaround for some GL clients ending up
preferring them)

Problem opening remote X applications

I just downloaded Cygwin 64-bit for the first time.  I've been using 
Cygwin 32-bit for years.

I'm running on Windows 7, and my Cygwin 32-bit has been working 
reasonably well for a long time.  My only issue with it was a problem it 
had with my Caps Lock key.  For whatever reason, focus would switch 
windows whenever I pressed the Caps Lock key.  The caps would lock, but 
focus would change.

I finally decided to download the latest and greatest to see if it has 
been fixed.  It appears that it is no longer an issue.  Now I have a new 
problem.

I usually "ssh -X <remote>" to a remote Linux machine.  I can then read 
mail (thunderbird), edit documents (LibreOffice 3.x), run Chrome, and 
edit programs (Emacs).  I'll have half a dozen windows open through the 
X tunnel provided by ssh.  Works well and lasts for hours.

After upgrading to Cygwin 64-bit (this last weekend), everything *seems* 
to be okay for a while.  After about 20 minutes, though, I can no longer 
open windows remotely.  Even though I have thunderbird currently open, 
when I try to run Chrome, I get "(google-chrome:20006): Gtk-WARNING **: 
cannot open display: localhost:10.0".  If I try to open xclock from the 
command line, I get:

xclock
Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0

Does anybody know what happened?  Why has the tunnel disappeared? It 
hasn't actually disappeared because I'm still running thunderbird

Re: gtk+ applications crash when filechooser opened

Hello,
	Has anyone found a resolution to this problem?  I've been searching for 
weeks now and haven't been able to find a solution.  My Cygwin 
installation has been broken ever since.

	Thanks!

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

In addition to upstream fixes [1], this contains the following cygwin-specific
changes since 1.14.4-2:

* [source] Fix compilation issues due to wglext.h from current w32api-headers
being older than current khronos-opengl-registry, by only generating wrappers
for used WGL functions, rather than for all WGL functions in the khronos registry.
* Add Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows XP x64 to the list of
Windows versions we know the name of

Restricting Port 6000 access in Cygwin/X

My company recently sent an audit finding requesting for our Cygwin/X users with a finding of the following;

"The remote host is running an X11 server.  X11 is a client-server protocol that can be used to display
graphical applications running on a given host on a remote client.   Since the X11 traffic is not
ciphered, it is possible for an attacker to eavesdrop on the connection."

The suggested solution was;

"Restrict access to this port. If the X11 client/server facility is not used, disable TCP support in X11
entirely (-nolisten tcp)."

 
My problem is that I haven't found any information that would help me accomplish this task. I've only
recently taken over support of our Cygwin users and am not well versed in the software. Can this be done
without breaking the functionality of the the software? If so, can you please advise on the steps to take to
accomplish this?

Current version being used is 1.7.11-1.

Thanks,
Kevin E. Brown
