[ANNOUNCE] weston 1.6.92

This is the first release candidate for Weston 1.7.  See the end of
this email for download links.

The main new feature added since rc1 is adding the missing feedback
flags, including ZERO_COPY, to the Presentation extension protocol
specification.  Compositors can use these flags to help clients ensure
the video playback pipeline is working as needed.  The various weston
backends are also updated to set presentation.presented flags as
appropriate to that backend's abilities.

There is now a login manager session entry for running Weston from GDM.
The Weston editor is now multi-seat aware, allowing multiple people to
type into the same text document.  

There are only a few actual bug fixes included this week; I view this as
a good sign!  The fixes are to corner case conditions found during
development, and to address a couple behavioral idiosyncracies of
surfaces in certain circumstances.  The long-failing xwayland-test test
case is rewritten and should pass much more reliably now.

Looking forward, rc2 is slated for Feb 6th.  Where we were liberal at
pulling things in for rc1, we'll be more stringent for changes in rc2.
1.7.0 will land Feb 13th, and changes between rc2 and 1.7.0 should only
be release-critical issues (hopefully none!)

I'll provide a more comprehensive rundown of all the changes for 1.7.0
