Updated: [1.7] {libXpm-noX/libXpm-noX-devel/libXpm-noX_4}-3.5.7-11

The libXpm-noX packages provide a version of the X.Org XPM image format
library that do NOT require the use of an X server.  This library
can be used to read, process, and save XPM images, but all display
code has been removed, because that requires X.  It is useful for
applications that need to manipulate XPM images, but are not themselves

This is a routine update and feature enhancement.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

This is the first release specific for cygwin-1.7; the only differences
between this package and the simultaneously-released libXpm-noX-3.5.7-2
for cygwin-1.5 are documentation related (the README references
cygport-0.9.5 and cygwin-1.7.0-43, and the /usr/share/doc/ layout is
influenced by the cygport changes between 0.4.x and 0.9.x).

CHANGES (since 3.5.6-1)
o Fork for cygwin-1.7 development
o Updated to latest upstream release
o Added libXpm.dll.a, libXpm.a, and libXpm.la 
  compatibility links in /usr/lib/noX/.
o Installed sample xpm files
o Modified simx.h and simx.c so that function signatures
  match current Xlib.h and Xutil.h
o Added new sxpm-noX.exe program. This is a simple xpm viewer
  that uses the cygXpm-noX_4.dll.  It is used to demonstrate
  that the noX library is working properly; the display code
  is WinGDI-based, not X-based.
