libX11 is like this Xlib, you know?   Apparently I've never written a quick
"what is Xlib?" blurb to go in these release announcements.  If you somehow
are reading this and really have no idea what Xlib does, maybe you can find
understanding in the text at <http://www.x.org/wiki/guide/xlib-and-xcb/> or
the simple diagram in <http://www.x.org/wiki/guide/xorg.svg>.

This release includes fixes to the code, docs & build system.
It makes both clang & doclifter happier.  It includes patches
upstreamed from Ubuntu, NetBSD, and Solaris.
