The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-1.10.1-1
*** xorg-server-dmx-1.10.1-1

These packages contain XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.

In addition to upstream fixes [1], this contains the following cygwin-specific
changes since 1.10.0-1:

* Correctly handle user log-off or shutdown, exiting cleanly and removing any
lockfile and unix domain socket. I'm doubtful WM_ENDSESSION handling has
ever worked properly before (as reported by numerous people over the years)
* Allow XScreenSaverSuspend() to also suspend Windows screen saver or monitor
power off (sourceware bugzilla #11563)
* Bug fixes for screen windows sized to a non-primary monitor's size: (i) size
to the chosen monitor's work area, not the primary monitor's work area (ii)
only reduce the size by one pixel to allow for an auto-hide taskbar if an
auto-hide taskbar is on that monitor.
* In multiwindow mode, don't grab the Windows input focus for new X windows
which hint they don't want it
* Add items to the default tray icon menu to open the logfile, FAQ and User's
* Report if OS is WoW64 or not when reporting OS version in log
* Remove some ancient pre-NT4 compatibility cruft
