The net-color spec from the libXcm repository is renamed [1].
The _NET_ prefix is reserved inside the Xorg atom name space. The new 
prefix is simply _ICC_.

The new spec draft is called X Color Management [2]. It contains the color 
regions in Xorg description and the device profile for Linux desktop 
colour servers.
Affected are libXcm, Xcm, Oyranos, CompICC and CinePaint. They are all 
updated and will contain the changes in their next releases.

The spec allowes a client/server communication about colour correction on 
the GPU by compositing window managers.

kind regards
