Hello list,

We have arrived at Weston 1.3.1.  The tarball is available from
http://wayland.freedesktop.org/releases.html as usual.  Todays lucky
numbers are:

  56acdfde4d1a3871d6e54f0cdbcf2736e73e979a  weston-1.3.1.tar.xz
  5e3ff49c7d4ed46c1678e640ec11f6938369c0bc  weston 1.3.1 tag

This is a bug fix release from the 1.3 branch.  There is no
corresponding Wayland release.  Artie did a good write-up on what
happened in this release:

We have a long list of bug fixes since 1.3.0:

  70877: VT-switch to X during Weston shutdown can crash X
  69764: Rapid VT-switch hangs system
  69777: Active client on disconnected output causes Weston segfault
  70878: Hot-unplug and VT-switch locks-up Weston
  70849: Weston-launch does not close fds on VT-switch
  71006: Zoom startup animation results in black/blank output
  70392: Fix fbdev compilation without EGL
  70459: Fail to launch weston without weston-launch on drm backend
  65802: Lock screen hangs compositor
  66794: Don't allow resizing window so small it causes rendering artifacts
  68739: Use /bin/sh for launching weston
  70590: Fix X11 fullscreen mode
  70870: Require at least xkbcommon 0.3.0
  70930: Make sure window map animations finish
  69219: Set xwayland fullscreen window input region properly

To round things out, 1.3.1 addresses several other gaps in 1.3.0,
like: klockwork fixes, don't show cursor when no pointer present (good
for touch-only systems), too many cursors in multi-seat setup,
multi-touch grab fixes and don't depend on drm in launcher. Overall,
there are no critical regressions since 1.3.0.

We did sneak in two minor features in 1.3.1: a new option to disable
the initial desktop fade-in and touch-to-focus support for touch

And last, but not least, two related mesa bug fixes happened recently:

  69437: Composite Bypass fix backported to Mesa-Wayland 9.2 branch
  70435: The Mesa texSubImage bug was resolved (garbled fonts)
