The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** XtoW-20130802-2

xtow is a window manager using the libxcwm library, which is:
* native: it integrates with native window management by putting each
top-level X window in it's own Windows window (similar to XWin -multiwindow)
* compositing: X windows with per-pixel alpha are composited into the native
DWM desktop on Windows Vista and later (e.g. a native window can be seen
through a semi-transparent X window placed over it)

XtoW is still experimental, but should now be usable enough for doing some
actual work. Testing and problem reports are appreciated.

Changes since 20130802-1:

* Fix packaging to include the startxtow script omitted in error
