The following packages (and their subpackages) have been updated in the 
Cygwin distribution:

* atril-1.8.1-1
* caja-1.8.2-1
* caja-python-1.8.1-1
* engrampa-1.8.1-1

The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides 
an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional 
metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.

To run the MATE desktop, install the mate-session-manager package and 
its dependencies, and either use the provided Start Menu shortcut, or:

echo "/usr/bin/dbus-launch mate-session" > $HOME/.xinitrc

and run 'startx' from the Cygwin prompt to launch.

This is an update to the latest upstream bugfixes for 1.8.  Please note 
that mate-terminal requires xorg-server 1.16.2-1 or newer to work in 
XWin -multiwindow mode.
