This is the official release of Wayland 1.9.  This release brings 
fixes and modest refactoring compared with 1.8.0.

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.

Various other build system improvements and minor fixes are also

Our next major release will be version 1.10, which is tentatively
scheduled as follows:

  √ Development opens immediately

  - 1.10-alpha in mid-January

  - 1.10-beta in first week of February

  - 1.10-rc1 around Feb 9th

  - 1.10.0 by mid-February
