Clean up unused variables. Modify comment(winMWExtWM* -> win*). Fix the problem that cursor doesn't change when cursor move in a window. (Kensuke Matsuzaki)

  • winshadgdi.c/winActivateAppShadowGDI - Turn back on the manually minimizing and restoring of our window when using the ShadowGDI engine in fullscreen mode. We perform the restoring or minimizing manually for ShadowGDI in fullscreen modes so that this engine will perform just like ShadowDD and ShadowDDNL in fullscreen mode; if we do not do this then our fullscreen window will appear in the z-order when it is deactivated and it can be uncovered by resizing or minimizing another window that is on top of it, which is not how the DirectDraw engines work. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

This newer multi-window mode uses the miext/rootless extension and requires Kensuke's xwinwm window manager, which will be released later as a Cygwin package. If you have to ask how to run this then you should wait until it is explained better; please do not ask questions about this in the mailing list for now.
  • MultiwindowExtWM Mode (-mwextwm) - Fix window reordering. Remove winMWExtWMReorderWindows. (Kensuke Matsuzaki)
  • General - Make most functions static that can be static. Remove declarations for functions used in only one place from win.h and put them in that single file. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)
  • wincreatewnd.c/winCreateBoundingWindowFullScreen - Stop using WS_EX_TOPMOST for fullscreen windows. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

Released: 2004-04-03 2230 EST
Download source: Now available as src package via setup.exe
Changes:
  • winclipboardxevents.c/winClipboardFlushXEvents/SelectionRequest - Change the number of elements passed to the first call to XChangeProperty from 32 * 4 to 4 since we are the count of array elements, not the byte count of the total array. (Lev Bishop)
  • winerror.c/winMessageBoxF - Correct used argument for va_start. (Alexander Gottwald)
  • winkeyhook.c, etc. - Add a low-level keyboard hook for catching special key combinations like Alt+Tab and passing them to the X Server instead of letting Windows handle them. Add a "-keyhook" parameter to enable this experimental feature. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers, Takuma Murakami)
  • windialogs.c - Display dialog boxes in the center of the Windows desktop if Cygwin/X is minimized. The problem was reported by Rodrigo Medina. (Takuma Murakami)

Released: 2004-03-30 1315 EST
Download source: Now available as src package via setup.exe
Changes:
  • winclipboardxevents.c/winClipboardFlushXEvents/SelectionRequest - Change the 'format' value for the first call to XChangeProperty from 8 to 32 since we are passing a data array of Atoms, which are 32 bits long. (Lev Bishop)
  • windialogs.c - Check for hand cursor not present (pre-desktop update W95/NT). (Earle F. Philhower III)
  • winmultiwindowwndproc.c - Don't set focus to windows with overrideRedirect flag is set. (Takuma Murakami)
  • winlayer.c - Remove dead file. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)
  • Imakefile, win.h, winrandr.c, winscrinit.c - Put in place a framework for supporting RandR. RRSetScreenConfig was added to Xserver/randr/randr.c to allow setting the current resolution from within the X Server (previously it was only something that X apps could do). There is a little bit of work to be done before this will work, but it compiles fine now and LAYER has been removed since it is no longer needed for RandR. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)
  • winclipboardwrappers.c - Clear ownership flag of the other monitored selection if an X application is taking ownership of a selection, which might help to prevent clipboard related pauses. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)

Released: 2004-03-29 1500 EST
Download source: Now available as src package via setup.exe

Changes:
  • winclipboardwrappers.c - Be careful to note that neither PRIMARY nor CLIPBOARD is owned by the clipboard integration manager when text is selected in X then unselected. This fixes at least part of the problem defined by Lev Bishop but needs to be tested. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)
  • winmultiwindowicons.c - Use BitsPerPixel() to calculate pixel stride, handle non-packed modes. (Earle F. Philhower III)
  • InitOutput.c, winclipboardthread.c - Properly destroy the clipboard window. Unfortunately, calling XCloseDisplay hangs for some unknown reason, so we have to leave the display open; I suspect this has something to do with our IOErrorHandler. (Harold L Hunt II - CodeWeavers)
  • XWin.rc - Move the About... entry in the tray icon menu up above the separator and change the title of the About box to "About Cygwin/X". (Jack Tanner)
