Hash: SHA1

This release of Xlib provides a number of fixes for multithreaded
applications, XCB support, connection transport layer support and man
pages, plus a bunch of build system & janitorial cleanups.

The libX11-1.3-branch has been created in the master git repo, and
the master branch is now being used for development leading to the
Xlib 1.4 release planned for inclusion in the X11R7.6 katamari
later this year.

The next release of Xlib, 1.4, will require the X C Binding (XCB) library,
and will always provide the Xlib/XCB interoperability functions
(XGetXCBConnection and XSetEventQueueOwner).  The Xlib 1.3 branch will
continue to support the --without-xcb option for the benefit of any
remaining distributors who do not yet ship XCB in their stable releases.

If you need this option for any other reason, please contact
xcb at lists.freedesktop.org and explain why.  As previously announced,
other parts of X11R7.6 will also require XCB (and in some cases no longer
require Xlib).
