You can download my currently used version of XWin.exe from:


This version includes also my other patches (e.g. experimental redrawing
of windows while they are resized/moved, see
http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-xfree/2011-08/msg00049.html). I'm using
this version daily, so it can be considered stable for my personal usage
patterns ;-) However if the redrawing patch causes problem on your setup
I could prepare a version without this patch.

For me the most missing feature from the official Cygwin's x-server is
the possibility to programmatically raise windows in multi window mode,
so I'm happy to hear that others are interested in this feature too.
