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.

IMPORTANT: THE startxwin.bat AND startxwin.sh SCRIPTS ARE NO LONGER 

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
