New mailing list; all trackers closed

I've closed all trackers, since I wasn't following them anyway, and I've made a mailing list instead. I plan to announce new uploads there, and that is the place to raise issues with packages.

I have a TON of packages ready to upload, including major parts of the GNOME 2.8 and Xfce 4.0.6 desktops, and as soon as administrative issues are handled and I've posted everything I'll announce it on the list.

SDL, other new packages at Cygwin Ports

I've just uploaded a bunch of packages, including current versions of SDL, SDL_gfx, SDL_image, SDL_mixer, SDL_net, SDL_ttf, smpeg, SDL_Perl, and pygame. A few pygame-based games have also been uploaded.

Look also for a new version of FOX, some more perl, python, and ruby modules, and coming soon: wxWidgets.

Gnome 2.4 packages now on cygwin-gnome2

I've ported recently a number of libraries, bindings, and eventually applications. To keep this project manageable, I've created a new cygwin-gnome2 project exclusively for Gnome 2.4 packages. (You'll need glib-2.x and gtk+-2.2 from the CyGnome2 project to run them.)
