This is a maintainance release of libXcm, the X11 Color Management
library. The package contains some build improvements and a bug fix.

Changes Overview:
* Patch for transposed EDID red y bits (Florian Höch)
* add xcm-edid xcm-x11 xcm-ddc pkg-config file

The library communicates X colour regions between server and clients,
which is described in the included X Color Management spec.
EDID data can be fetched through i2c communication.
EDID data can be parsed for identification and access to colorimetric
calibration data.
libXcm helps in observing known X11 colour management events.

Known applications using libXcm:
The library is used by KolorServer and CompIcc, a Compiz plugin, for
full screen colour correction in hardware. libXcm allows to
support multi monitor and multiple regions per window. The Oyranos
Colour Management System uses the EDID parser. QCmsEvents applet
observes and displays colour management events in a nice GUI. Xcm
contains three command line tools for EDID fetching, EDID parsing and
event observing.


Thanks to all contributors.
