[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: XtoW 20160323-1 (experimental)

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** XtoW-20160323-1

xtow is a window manager using the libxcwm library, which is:

* native: it integrates with native window management by putting each top-level X window in it's own Windows window (similar to XWin -multiwindow)

* compositing: X windows with per-pixel alpha are composited into the native DWM desktop on Windows Vista and later (e.g. a native window can be seen through a semi-transparent X window placed over it)

XtoW is still experimental, but should now be usable enough for doing some actual work. Testing and problem reports are appreciated.

Changes since 20130802-3:

* Fix transparent windows on Windows 10, copying the approach from [1]. Unfortunately, making this work on Windows 8.1 without 3rd party software seems near impossible.

Changes since 20130802-2:

* Rewrite startxtow to use python rather than perl to find the virtual desktop size, since perl-Win32-GUI is no longer packaged
* Add xwin-xdg-menu, so there is some means to launch things and exit
* Fix start menu item to use "(32-bit)" on WoW64, and have the correct icon
* Include postinstall and preremove scripts to add and remove start menu item in the package
