The xinit program is used to start the Xserver and one or more client
programs on systems that are not using a display manager such as xdm.

This release contains a number of fixes for the integration with launchd
on MacOS/darwin, some general code cleanups, and build configuration

Packagers should note that this release expands the use of the openssl
program for xauth cookie generation to any platform which has openssl
but not mcookie discoverable by configure.  It assumes the presence of 
the rand -hex flag originally added for OpenBSD, but now carried in the
upstream OpenSSL.  The configure script will output a notice such as:
  configure: startx will depend on "/usr/bin/openssl rand -hex 16" to
    generate xauth cookies
in order to inform you which was chosen so you may set your package
dependencies appropriately.

Alan Coopersmith (7):
      Add printf attributes suggested by gcc
      If we have to forcibly kill the Xserver on Solaris, reset kbd_mode
      Declare processTimeout() as taking a const string arg
      Check for openssl as mkcookie fallback on all platforms, not just OpenBSD
      Use pid_t instead of int for type of pids
      Add Apple copyright/license notice from launchd files to COPYING
      xinit 1.3.3

Egbert Eich (2):
      man: Set correct config file location in man page
      install: Use sysconfdir instead of libdir for config files.

Jeremy Huddleston (9):
      launchd/privileged_startx: Improved error resolution
      launchd: Don't provide the LaunchAgent on Tiger
      launchd: Provide more verbose error reporting for launchd checkin failures
      launchd: Load privileged_startx properly on Tiger
      launchd: Fix the destination of moved-aside directories in privileged_startx
      darwin: Silence a syslog message from defaults
      laucnhd: Silence some syslog spam
      Annotate Fatal and Fatalx as _X_NORETURN
      XQuartz: Fix an issue where -dpi was not being passed to the server despite being set

Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia (1):
      privileged_startx: use root:wheel instead of 0:0

Thomas Klausner (1):
      Use xinitrc.d/?*.sh as the matching pattern instead of needing a fragile sed substitution XSLASHGLOB to produce xinitrc.d/*.sh. (If that were used literally the slash-star would confuse cpp.)
