This release introduces an new "XWAYLAND" extension:

    This extension exists to serve one purpose: reliably identifying
    Xwayland. Previous attempts at doing so included querying root window
    properties, output names or input device names. All these attempts are
    somewhat unreliable. Instead, let's use an extension - where that
    extension is present we have an Xwayland server.

    Clients should never need to do anything but check whether the extension
    exists through XQueryExtension/XListExtensions.

The DRI3 protocol was bumped to 1.3 and has a new DRI3SetDRMDeviceInUse request:

     This request provides a hint to the server about the device
     in use by this window. This is used to provide
     DRI3GetSupportedModifiers with a hint of what device to
     return modifiers for in the window_modifiers return value.
     Using this hint allows for device-specific modifiers to
     be returned by DRI3GetSupportedModifiers, for example
     when an application is renderoffloaded and eligible for
     direct scanout.

The remaining commits are the usual combination of housekeeping and
