I'm pleased to announce the 1.4.0 release of xf86-video-amdgpu, the Xorg
driver for AMD Radeon GPUs supported by the amdgpu kernel driver.
This release supports xserver versions 1.13-1.19.


* Clients can now use DRI page flipping even while TearFree is enabled
  for any CRTC. This should improve performance of such clients
  (including compositing managers) while TearFree is enabled, and avoid
  other issues such as tearing on other CRTCs where TearFree isn't
* The driver now takes measures to prevent other DRM master processes
  (potentially from other local users) from accessing buffers created by
  this driver while switched away to a different VT. Other DRM master
  processes should only be able to access a single buffer anymore, which
  contains only all-black pixels.
* The gamma ramp is now applied to the HW cursor as well, so the HW
  cursor doesn't look odd when e.g. using Redshift or similar tools.

Plus other improvements and fixes. Thanks to everybody who contributed
to this release in any way!
