The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.14.0-1

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

This is the first release of the xserver 1.14 series.  It is currently
available as a test release, and will be made stable in approximately two
weeks if no major regressions are reported.

Please try test releases and report problems to the Cygwin/X mailing list.
Testing helps ensure good releases!

Unfortunately, the upstream announce mail [1] does not contain a full
changelog since 1.13, so you will need to consult the changelog or git for a
list of upstream fixes and improvements.

In addition, the following cygwin-specific changes have been made since 1.13.3-1:

* Add support for mouse tilt wheel
* Change mouse buttons 4 and 5 from X buttons 6 and 7 to X buttons 8 and 9,
which, with mouse tilt wheel as X buttons 6 and 7, matches the default
configuration on Linux.
* Add a PaintWindow hook which lets us build all the DDX in one pass without
causing linking difficulties with the rootless extension.
* Handle -displayfd and an explicit :display sensibly, so -displayfd can be
used with startx [2].
