Tcl/Tk has been updated to 8.5.11 with the following important changes:

* Tcl now uses *NIX APIs and will behave like other Cygwin programs with
regards to filename paths, etc.

* Tk (tcl-tk) now uses X11 instead of GDI.  This means the following
Tk-based applications now require an X server at runtime:

- gitk and git-gui
- WordNet
- wordview (from the catdoc package)
- idle
- Anything using python's tkinter or ruby's tcltk modules.

* The following Tcl extensions are now packaged separately:

- tcl-itcl
- tcl-itk
- tcl-iwidgets
- tcl-tix
- tcl-tk

* Most packages which used tcltk have been rebuilt and will pull in
whichever tcl packages they now require.

* Any Tcl extensions or applications which you have installed yourself
will need to be rebuilt.

Please report any issues encountered with this upgrade to the Cygwin
list.
