Updated: xinit-1.2.0-2

The following package has been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* xinit-1.2.0-2

This package includes the startx, startxdmcp.bat, and startxwin commands for launching the XWin server.


This release replaces those scripts with a startxwin executable.

By default, startxwin will launch an XWin server in multiwindow mode together with an xterm. A $HOME/.startxwinrc file can be created with a list of commands for startxwin to launch instead of an xterm.

startxwin also accepts command line arguments to use a different DISPLAY number and add additional options to pass to the server. Please read the startxwin(1) manpage, which describes both the command-line arguments accepted by startxwin and the format of the $HOME/.startxwinrc file.
