Updated: xorg-server-1.8.0-1 (TEST)

The following package has been updated for Cygwin 1.7:

* xorg-server-1.8.0-1 (TEST)

This package contains XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.

This is the first official release of the xserver 1.8 series. It is currently available as a test release, and will be made stable in approximately 10 days if no major regressions are reported.


* The default server DPI, previously hardcoded to 75, now matches Windows' DPI (usually 96, unless set larger in Control Panel). Xt/Xaw/Motif apps which use bitmap fonts will probably look better with the font-*-dpi100 packages. Apps which are based on Xft (including GTK+/GNOME and Qt/KDE) will benefit from setting the Xft.dpi property in ~/.Xdefaults. Please be aware that this does not necessary match the monitor's *physical* DPI (which matters when using screen rulers) but should be more compatible with Windows apps, especially in multiwindow mode.

* The openssl dependency has been replaced by libgcrypt11.
