The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* libXfont1-1.5.2-1
* libXfont-devel-1.5.2-1
* libXfont2_2-2.0.1-1
* libXfont2-devel-2.0.1-1

libXfont provides the core of the legacy X11 font system, handling the 
index files (fonts.dir, fonts.alias, fonts.scale), the various font file 
formats, and rasterizing them.  It is used by the X servers, the X Font 
Server (xfs), and some font utilities (e.g. bdftopcf), but should not be 
used by normal X11 clients.  X11 clients access fonts via either the new 
APIs in libXft, or the legacy APIs in libX11.

This is an update to the latest version of the soon-to-be-legacy 1.x API, 
and the initial release of the 2.x API to be used by xserver 1.19.
