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* The openssl dependency has been replaced by libgcrypt11.
