A bunch of bug fixes for this (final?) release candidate. Notable

* Kristian's fix for receiving damage events before the hardware has
  seen the rendering requests (which caused all kinds of weird
  partially-completed drawing to appear)

* Alan's updates to the docs to track the API changes

* Alan and, Peter's fixes for various input-related crashes.

* A special commendation to Adam for fixing bug number #3040

* Our official ABI tracker, Aaron, says we're at Video ABI 8 now.

Please test and report back; this should be close to the 1.9 final.

Thanks to everyone for the patches and testing we've seen so far. If you
want to help with the release, please take a look at the 1.9 tracking


We've still got over a dozen bugs in this list; it would be nice to
clean up as many as possible. There are a couple of bugs that should be
on the top of our list: 29251 (a regression from 1.8), 29184 (which has
a patch attached), 28801 (which has a *reviewed* patch attached), 21760
(also has a patch attached).

Help getting those with fixes into the tree, and help fixing the
regressions would be greatly appreciated.

We're still on-track for an 8/20 release. Keep the patches coming, and
start getting patches out for review that will want to included in 1.10.
