    new release: 1.30 beta
    Mark Hayter got x2x working under cygwin,
    eliminating the need to buy a Windows X server
    when forwarding from a Wintel machine.

    Thanks to Thomas Chadwick for releasing Mark's
    code as cygwin package x2x-1.30-1.

    I think that the next step for x2x is to contact
    Debian to see if we can't unite the cygwin and
    debian versions of x2x.

    I have contacted Thomas Chadwick, the Cygwin x2x maintainer, to see if he wants to continue developing x2x.

    hacking x2x again
    After a number of requests and for my own use,
    I'd like to get x2x working better with cygwin.

    Since I wrote x2x, I've received a number
    of contributions and requests for x2x. If time
    permits, I'll merge in some of them.
