0.5.4 is just another development release and part of my new strategy to
push out development releases every second week or when a major new
feature has landed. The release number probably got wrong, though. It
should probably have been 0.7.0. I'll get this right in the next
I'm not sure what will end up in 0.6 and not. I'm not going to be much
in charge of what goes into 0.6 and not. We can revert the commit that
added the XCB requirement and re-base the 0.6 branch on head if people
are interested in that.
