Hello list,

We're getting close to the 1.4.0 release date - well, actually that
was supposed to be Jan 16, but we ended up slipping a week to get a
more solid first beta (1.3.92) out.  We tagged that Jan 10 and here's
1.3.93, aka second beta or release candidate:

  61102991fb28a1df68cedce35e9bec9fe040d431  wayland-1.3.93.tar.xz
  45087064bc31003fe36be5ca77f2b1f66516f457  wayland 1.3.93 tag

  6c0dc7ff4de30d5638bf175706477e6773a84d56  weston-1.3.93.tar.xz
  7cccfcab1340aa976e615e40261af2261234ead7  weston 1.3.93 tag

The 1.3.92 snapshot was a little lightweight: I didn't do 1.3.92 tar
balls or formal release and we had a problem with the 1.3.92 snapshots
where the configure versions for those tags were 1.3.91.  However, for
weston, the 1.3.92 relase had around 60 commits, 50 of which were bug
fixes and I feel like we got the quality under control again.

I count around 11 additional fixes in this release and then we have a
lot of good commits from Artie to fix various static analyzer issues.
We'll run this through QA and then if all goes well, we should be
ready to release 1.4 this Thursday, Jan 23.  I don't expect we'll
touch the code much between now and then, but do let me know if
there's anything we might be missing.  I'm looking at

  https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73768, and

as bugs we may want to try to fix before the release, but it depends
on how invasive the fixes are.
