Here is the first release candidate for the upcoming 1.9.

There have been no changes since the beta.

One notable change for this release of Wayland is an update of 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.

At this point we're still on schedule for the official release probably
on September 22nd.

See the beta release announcement for previous changes.
