Here is the beta for the upcoming Wayland 1.9 release.  Since alpha, the
only change is dropping a change that would have required all users to

This release of Wayland updates the license text.  MIT has released
software under several slightly different licenses, including the old
'X11 License' or 'MIT License'.  X.org used the X11 License originally
but now prefers the MIT Expat License as the standard.  Wayland has been
using the MIT X11 license, but Wayland's licensing intent is to be
compatible with X.org, so this release switches to the Expat-style
licensing.  In practical terms, the most notable change is the dropping
of the no-advertising clause.

Internally, Wayland's libwayland-util has been split into two libraries,
libwayland-util and libwayland-private.  The former is shared with the
wayland-scanner utility, the latter is strictly for Wayland itself.

As previously discussed, we'll be allowing a couple weeks for bugfixing
before starting on release candidates.
