This package provides the headers and specification documents defining
the X Window System Core Protocol, Version 11.

It also includes a number of headers that aren't purely protocol related,
but are depended upon by many other X Window System packages to provide
common definitions and porting layer.

This release provides two code changes - an additional #include <sys/types.h>
on Solaris machines to fix build issues in the X server, and the addition of
new XF86XK_TouchpadOn & XF86XK_TouchpadOff keysyms to the keysym definition

It also now includes the definitions of the ServerInterpreted families of
addresses that have been registered for use with the xhost +si:* syntax,
that were previously found in the xorg-docs module, since the X11 Protocol
spec defines the ServerInterpreted method and provides for those definitions.

The rest of the changes are further refinements of the DocBook/XML conversion
of the protocol spec which was introduced in xproto 7.0.19.   The HTML & PDF
versions should both feature greatly improved internal hyperlinking to allow
easier navigation and following of references between the interconnected
requests and events in the spec.   The conversion of the documentation is a
work in progress, and we appreciate all proof-reading to find errors (this
release fixes a couple spots where nroff markup didn't get properly converted
and appeared in the resulting text) as well as feedback on formatting or other
changes that would make the documentation more useful to developers.  Of course,
we are being very careful to not change the actual formal specification of the
protocol in these changes, just the formatting and usability.
